Try unplugging (and leaving it unplugged) the steering servo.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
X2 Try pulling the servo from the RX n see if the light show stops.
If it does the servo is bad.
That's A good little safety feature. You can't wreck from A bad servo if you can't drive with one.
Pretty sure I fried my XL 2.5 esc this weekend because of a bad servo that came with a used rally I just bought. There was a light show inside the steering servo and smoke started pouring out of the ESC. After this it still worked but you could steer with the ESC off. Something got welded together and the ESC is very jumpy when driving now...time for a new ESC
mine just did this today and it was the servo
