There are some interlocks for the Big Foot to prevent operation. One is the engine running. I think the other is transmission in Park, not Neutral (or any other gear).
Also, there is a fused 30 amp power supply that does not come from the controller. The controller just supplies the control signals to each of the hydraulic pumps.
I would would first check the interlocks. It's easy to overlook using the Big Foot with the engine running. I've done it a couple times myself.

Big Foot

The engine was not running. We were plugged into shore power at the house.

It is possible your Bigfoot just needs to be reset. A common problem when battery falls below a certain level. Even after charging battery the Bigfoot system will not reset automatically. You must reset it manually by unplugging control board for 30 seconds. Watch this video
