Check to make sure you have the Dir port set correctly for that axis, if that is not the problem then it sounds like you have a loose Dir wire.

I made some changes   I turned on not only XY&Z  but turn on AB&C     and the motors started working right . I still have to have estop turned on   or i cant reset ,even with machine hooked up and on, But at least the axes are all working
