    Esc problems

    Turned my merv on today and the esc turned its self on and it automatically cycles through the driving modes. Mode 1, 2 and 3 (sport, racing and training mode) and keep going through these and dosent stop. It's not anything else. Everything is disconnected its just the esc on its own but it also does the same with all the electronics plugged in and it's not the lipos as all of my 4 lipos do the same. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Very strange! My best guess would possibly be a sticky power button or she's got internal issues.

    100% of the symptoms of a sticky power button!
    Nobody is born with experience.

    I dont know if you already tested it. A defect Servo is able to confuse the Esc. Unplug the Servo for testing issues.

    Already tried a different servo and nothing happens it still does the same. I think it's a stick button too. How could I fix it?

    Just tried wd-40 and its working better. It dosent turn on by its self anymore and dosent cycle through modes. But turns off after a while which means its still sticking a little bit. I will leave some to soak over night and hopefully that will do the trick!
