There definitely should be a dial light visible, even with no cable
attached. I am not sure of whether there should be voltage on the motor
wires when you press the rotate key with no rotator attached, but I
would think so. Anyhow, you can certainly see (with a voltmeter) if
you're getting voltage to the dial light.
