Why won't my controller turn on?

My controller was left in a hot car for 3 days and nights. When I got it home I pressed the PS button to turn in on as 2nd player, so the PS system was already on, and the left rumbler started vibrating instantly. The light was red. I plugged it in n it changed through all the colors now it's just red, it's solid for 5 seconds then fades out n back in when charging. Off the charger it's still vibrating but no light. Is it trashed or what? Why is it rumbling still!

The heat must have compromised the motherboard , I'd suggest opening your controller up to see if anything isn't as it should.

It all looks good to me, but I can't explain why electricity is going to the left tumbler only. Not a battery problem, its a buzzing a unipack, not a charging problem, if battery is hholding juice. Motherboard sounds like the worst case scenario, but I'm asking. Is it an inexpensive and/or easy fix or...
