    Erevo brushed stopped after 1 minute, maybe motors, how do I check? Help please

    Hi, I have just bought a used Erevo, box stock and had little use, however I've just run it for the first time to check out and it literally just stopped after approx 1 minute, ie no drive.

    I've reset the tx to default and checked ESC calibration and it seems to be ok, however on the bench if i apply a tiny bit of throttle the car tries to turn the motors.

    How can I diagnose ESC or motors etc using a multimeter I thought??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can inform the seller and hopefully resolve.

    First off I would reset everything. Centre all your trim knobs, do a reset on the remote and rebind to the receiver then redo the throttle positions for the speed control.

    I've tried that too. Reset tx to default, re- bind with rx, and calibrated ESC to the tx.

    Btw, the ESC green led is on, however goes off on trigger pull until max forward or reverse is reached, like when in calibrate mode, is this normal?

    Thanks

    Have you checked the steering servos?
    I have seen a bad servo cause some really strange things to happen with the evx2.Are one or both noticeably hot to the touch? If so that is the first place I would look

    traxxas says to take the motor out and to put it straight to your battery and see if she spins! in my case... no movement at all..

    Have you figured this out? I am having exact ESC light issue. Have you figured I out, this is my first rc car and don't know much at all.
