    Question Motor or Electronics not working (Help Please)

    Hi, I'm a newbie so bare with me. The car turns on and the steering works but I can't go forward or reverse. When I try to give it throttle the ESC just goes red and it doesn't respond. Is this a motor problem or ESC? The battery is fully charged and I changed all batteries in the remote. I'm not sure what happened or what's going on. Any basic troubleshooting that I should do? Like re-wire everything? I checked all the wires and everything seems connected. I don't know if I Need to re-program anything?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Sounds like you need to Rebind the radio with the esc. There are videos on YouTube that show you how to do so.

    what type of battery are you using? If you have the esc in Nimh mode, and you are using a lipo battery it can cause issues.
