    Messed something up - no throttle control now

    Evening,
    Well I figuered I would be a nice dad and install some LED (non traxxas) into my son's 2wd brushed Slash tonight. Well the first thing was before I did the install I figured I would test out the connection points, so I grabbed one of our lipos and powered up the truck. The LED just flashed so I disconnected and tried a different port in the reciver box got the same result. So after that I wanted to do some reading and he wanted to drive his truck. Now when we turn it on, there is no throttle control unless you turn the steering knob. So I check the traxxas manual and tried to re-config the transmitter to the esc no luck. It seems to have lost something in the connection between the two, steering works when you turn the steering knob but now so does the motor. Any help would be great, oh and I did but new batteries in the transmitter and I also get the same result with the stock nihm battery

    Oh and its a XL5 - 2.4ghz TQI setup
