You stop the engine and retract the awning with the open/close switch. This is just a test to see if your own awning is affected.
However, damage may have already been done to the awning mechanism by the incorrect wiring, as in my case: while driving down the road, the seismic (wind) sensor was continually trying to retract an already retracted awning, and eventually the gears stripped.
This was confirmed by a call to Fiamma service.
