Resolution:
In order to run, Bits 0-3 must be all high, this translates to decimal value of 15.  Bit 11 of the control word determines the direction of the the drive.  When bits 0,1,2,3 are high  (decimal 15) the drive runs in Forward direction.  When bits 0,1,2,3,11 are high (decimal 2063) the drive runs in Reverse direction.
