The B4 connectios you have made are good for a reed-type motor. Just open
the motor-box and check if got a reed-motor. If you see a little black wheel
and on the top of this a reed-relay, then check the wire on the
motor-connector. The two thick wires you go to M1 and M2 on the B4-terminal.
Shield and a second thinner wire go the appr. connectors on the receiver
(sensor and ground/shield). If you got a opto-type motor connect the the red
wire to the 5V terminal.
