Default Car fully working except it won't move

I have a TA-05 with all components working, except when I push the throttle or reverse nothing happens. The steering works and the electric motor also works except it doesn't rev when I push the throttle. Any idea how I can fix this? Thanks!

how do you know motor works ? car is not moving

so
Pull pinion and test motor esc that way.. if it spins then you need to check your drive train.. start from wheels work in to motor mount ..
wheel nuts to tight
hub bearings froze
front diffs spins freely main drive spins freely
main diff spins freely
rear diff and wheel bearing should have done when u checked fronts..
other wise good ole speed passion stuff LOL..

To the receiver yes, but I don't recall programming the esc to the transmitter.

That doesn't mean the motor works. Do the ESC thing to the transmitter and try again.

How tight is your gear mesh. There should be just the slightest bit of play between pinion and spur.

If it is a sensored motor and you have the ABC wires in the wrong order it wont run.
