This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.
Good Luck, Phil

Just had this same thing, on this exact faucet. If you still have the manual, it has instructions on how to rotate the valve for back to back installations where one shower has the hot/cold reversed. Our contractor got ours in backwards the first time and I had to call and have them come out and rotate the valve this morning.
