No output produced from searching against known motif database in CentriMo


I am using MEME suite to find some information about TF motif site from a list of TSS upstream sequence that I got. The DNA sequence is generated from a non-model organism, which is also a crustacean. As I dont have a control set, I simply input with the "primary sequence (fasta sequence)" and "output from MEME (motif that I am interested)" to do the local enrichment with option "anywhere". I got some output with most of it showed e-value as 1 and p-value as 9. This doesn't seemed good instead of using "MEME output", I swapped it with fly database, yet it produced nothing. I have also tried with eukaryote database, JASPAR2018_core_vertebrate and jaspar2018_core_insect, they all showed nothing in the output. Is there any advise on how to make this motif findings meaningful using CentriMo? I know that simply relying on the output of MEME is not enough because many false positives results is generated at the same time. Instead of MEME if I straight away proceed with TOMTOM, is this makes sense since I can argue that the sequence called by MEME showed high similarity to consensus sequence found by TOMTOM?
Thank you in advance.
