    What are the lights on the Receiver box and esc doing? That may be a good place to start troubleshooting

    Yup, need some information to help you out...

    First, what electronics are you running in your Slash?

    ESC
    Motor
    Transmitter
    Receiver
    Battery
    Charger

    When you plug in the battery and turn on the ESC, does the ESC's LED come on? If so, what color is it? Is the LED solid, or is it blinking? If it is blinking, is it fast or slow?

    If the ESC is turning on, what is the receiver LED doing?

    Check your transmitter batteries first.

    Since the servo stopped first, unplug it, and see if your throttle works. Many times a failing servo can fudge up radio operation on all of the channels. Unplugging the servo is usually the first thing I check when having mysterious radio symptoms.
