    Remote Lights

    Ive just installed the Traxxas 8030 light kit on my TRX-4.
    Everything is working fine.

    How can I switch light song and off remotely from the Traxxas Link App?
    Every time I try it tells me 'No Traxxas Power Amplifier Detected'.

    Do I need another part??

    With my limited knowledge on the subject I see three things that could be wrong

    1.Yes you need part number xxxx

    2.it could be a problem with your receiver/ESC etc. check for firmware updates

    3.Or you may need to send it into traxxas as it could be a bad receiver or connection inside your hardware

    But take my suggestions with a heaping helping of salt as I don't have a lot of experience with the Trx-4

    Sorry I couldn't be more help

    I believe the Amplifier is only for the Desert Racer

    Ah cool. Thanks for the confirmation.

    May look into some kind of remote that allows me to switch on and off.....

    Ah thanks guys ! I have just bought a TRX4 Defender (complete with full light system) and my dashboard says No Traxxas Power Amplifier Detected, yet I followed all the info that came.
    I would have thought that it could mention somewhere that it does not work with the TRX4

    Now I am VERY confused as I have read through the instruction manual which came with my purchase and it is MADE for the Defender version so why is it not working on a brand new purchase which was a RTR version ?

    Well I have "thrown out " the Traxxas lighting kit except the light bar and the rock lights.
    I have fitted a little box '''12 LED Lighting Headlight Kit SIGNAL Flash Lights For 1/10 RC Car Truck UK''' which now has direction indicators, brake lights, reverse lights and head light (on when moving) the addition required the use of 2 Y leads to connect to the Rec in channel 1 & 2 for the control of indicators and head/ reverse & brake lights.
    I have also changed the way the rock lights are operated, with the aid of a radio controlled switch fitted with another Y lead to the REAR DIFF LOCK channel so that when this diff is locked the rock lights come on then to turn off you have to first unlock the diff then lock and unlock to set the RC switch back to off. A little faffing around but it works for me.
    I unfortunately have an issue with my ESC so have changed this out along with the external BEC? so I can keep running until I sort out the Traxxas unit issue. The app on my phone works well.
    My front winch is controlled via fob though I am looking into other ideas.
