    ESC Switch Help

    I'm having a problem that when I plug my battery in the ESC is already on. it starts Green, then blinks Red, then double blinks red and then triple blinks red and then starts from the single red blink again.

    I can't switch off or on.
    The ESC is the VXL-3s and I'm using a 2s lipo.

    Any ideas ?

    I don't know if the button on the current VXL-3s (3355R) is the same as on the old version (3355X). A common issue with the old version was that the on-off button got stuck due to accumulated dirt. Try silicon spray or a small drop of shock oil and "massage" the button a little (I swear, no pun intended...).

    A durable solution to avoid a stuck on/off button with the old version (3355X) was to glue a rubber shock diaphragm from the ultra shocks (#1765) on top of the button. Just be very careful not to get glue on the button itself. It did this simple mod six years ago, and have never had this problem since.

    Otherwise, if it's within warranty, do as Panther suggests.

    Fixed for now guys. After reading another post I find the switch stuck on.
    I've given it a good clean so hopefully it doesn't happen again.

    Thanks for the help ideas.
