Sure that the power supply is good? And you connecting directly to to motor? If so, you need a new motor.

Make sure if you change the motor to the new sealed type that the small thrust ball bearings at the end of the motor shaft are removed if there. The new motors have thrust bearings inside the motors now. Since the lights worked, it is not the power supply.

Be sure to check the alignment on the end of the motor at the power connections as if you put the motor in wrong it will make the engine go backwards when the forward light is on.
