Default Minnkota help

Hi everyone, I took apart the controllers and wiring assembly on my Minnkota endura 30 so that I could cut the shaft down for use on my yak. After I assembled it back together, everything seemed fine. However, once on the water I realized that when I turned up all 5 speeds it would go in reverse. When I used the 3 speed settings, it would propel me forward. There is no way I could conceive of messing up the wiring since all the wires are color coded and I matched the right terminal. The battery cables are correctly attached too.

The handle configuration is exactly the way it was before, with the numbers facing up and centerline at zero.

What could be wrong? Thanks.
