    Can't get the LVS to turn off

    The low voltage setting on my ESC is somehow stuck. I followed the instructions in the manual and still all i get is sttering response but no throttle.

    Never had this problem till today and I've had the 4x4 stampede vxl since january.

    Batteries are fully charged and all wires are accounted for.

    Is there anything i can do to fix this besides having to take it back to the dealer? I looked at the directions, did what they say and still no power to the wheels. When it is in the Low voltage indicator, it runs fine for about 2 min then no power whatsoever. I just can't get the green light to turn off and the red light to stay on. Red light blinks and then no power to motor.

    Any help here would be great.

    Thanks.

    Just have steering response, no power to wheels when i try to get it running. Thinking i may have problem with the esc. Might have to replace that. Just wish there was a simpler solution. Surely someone on here has had a problem like this.

    Button does not stick,there is no water damage, Reciever is fine.

    Unplug your servo from reciever and try it. I had a similar prob on my merv and it was a bad servo.

    Yeah, when servos go bad, they play havoc on the other electronics

    Well called traxxas today and it seems i wasn't holding the button down long enough to hear the chimes.

    It's working now. thanks for the help though.

    I do want to know how could i upload a pic to show my stampede. I upgraded shocks, and rear u-joints to metal ones. Just waiting on metal driveshafts( like the rest of you).

    Tried uploading a Jpeg but the site wont allow those.
