?... I havent tried programing it yet i wasnt sure if the led was supposed to light up or anything


Also adding to this... It might be the battery pack because it is an old one I found ... How could I test that??

As per zillions of previous posts - the LED is not a power LED. It only lights if your program tells it to light.
Sorry - dont mean to be -ve - but this stuff has been covered and is searchable.
