M52233 ADC

I'm fairly new to working with the MCF hardware and I'm having trouble getting the analog to digital conversion to work correctly. I have a function generator sending a sinusoidal wave going into the AN0 pin (pin 10 on the board) and put the grounding probe to the ground on the board. I have written code to write values into nearly every writeable register associated with the ADC and run the program and still don't see results. Any advice as to what I could be doing wrong would be appreciated. If it helps, here is the code I currently have written:

#include "mcf52233_adc.h"

void ADC_config(void)
// Disables interrupts, sets individual input pins, sets mode to single sequential
MCF_ADC_CTRL1 = 0x4000;
// Sets conversion clock to one sixth system clock
MCF_ADC_CTRL2 = 0x0002;

// Disables zero crossing flag
MCF_ADC_ADZCC = 0x0000;

// Set all samples to be taken from AN0
MCF_ADC_ADLST1 = 0x0000;
MCF_ADC_ADLST2 = 0x0000;

// Disable AN1 - AN7, enable AN0
MCF_ADSDIS = 0b11111110;

// Set the 'Start' bit

// Wait in this loop for the conversion to complete


After spinning in the loop for a few seconds in debug mode and checking the MCF_ADC_RSLT0 register as well as the MCF_ADC_ADSTAT register, there is no change. Any help would be appreciated.
