I experienced the same problem with this esc that was brand new and bundled with the M03 mini cooper kit. It basically never gets out of setup mode, I tried using different receivers, hooked up a motor and all it did was make beeping sounds.

Fortunately the shop that I bought it from were happy to replace it. The shop owner said a bad batch of them got released from Tamiya.

This is when there is no signal from the reciever. The best way is to very the radio works, might be another car, or maybe use a rx battery, and servo.

The BIGGEST problem I have found is (as above) you MUST use the TWO cable and plug them into the reciever. The second plug is what powers the speeder from the other plug.

good luck
Kevin
