Are you running with NiMh?

If so, then check ESC settings to make sure LVC (Low Voltage Cutoff) is disabled.

in order to give better advise it might be nice if you told us what battery and esc. if its a lipo and all stock it could be heat. could be wrong settings in esc or radio. could be low voltage lipo some units need 50 C or better to run read manual. post up what ya got maybe we or some one can suggest how to help

Amain has it listed as included NIMH probly a bad battery. so maybe go to your local hobby shop and see if they have a decent priced lipo and charger for you.

If nimh there is a chance that one of the cells went dead 0V, not shorted and not an open.

LIPO batteries have no way to bring them back from the brink..

I warn hobbyist when zapping nicd or nimh batteries or cells, do this outside and not inside a garage. Do not over heat nimh cells or pack, if zapping a pack doesn’t work after a short period at 12v 10amp load rolling standard charger and then putting it back on the designed charger doesn’t work then the pack is dead

Back in the day I used to charge NICD batteries right off my car battery and rate the charge by both time and heat, also zapped battery packs for a minute.

Nimh batteries are not so resilient and if a dead cell is brought back to life by zapping whiskers are developed inside the battery cell and this reduces the usefulness of the cell.
