HiOn the back of th board, for a serial connection, you only need to use 3 wire.  ( GND TX RX ).  you can see witch ones on the documentation on rsmdevkit. Your other problems are probebly more down to teh battery connections.  I would check the feet first.  ( connection blocks in each foot.  ) I have re-wired a few of these so let me know if you get stuck.  Cleen any contacts for the batterys.
