When I am using 9V supply with motor driver and Jumper connected so the red LED was blinking but when I did the same using 9V and 15V supply removing the jumper LED didn't blink. Neither the voltage nor the current drop across the motor was observed. And I didn't found any documentation for using L298n using without a jumper. enter image description here

    You need to provide a link to that specific driver board. The L298N is only the H-bridge chip on it. The circuit around it (including the jumpers and headers) is specific to that board. Please include that link in your question (by editing it)

    The jumper controls whether or not the on-board 5V regulator is used to power the on-board logic. With the jumper removed the board needs an external 5V supply in addition to the motor power supply. Oct 7 '21 at 10:09
  • Is your Arduino ground connected to the 15V power supply ground?
