Default Nitro Rustler Wont start?

Hey guys,

Me and my friend were trying to get his nitro rustler started and it wont go. We charged the ez starter up and when we ppress the button when its not plugged into the car the little light that says motor next to it lights up green. When we plug it into the car and press nothing happens and the lights on the starter dont light up. Anybody have any ideas?

make sure you are putting the ez start in with the red button facing the front of the car. If you are doing that trace the wires and make sure they are all hooked up and your ground is bolted to your motor mount. You should get a green light on the glow plug side if the plug is good. (if your not using a glow warmer already) if your not getting any lights at all then it's something to do with your wires from the ez start plug to the motor. Also make sure you are about to turn the motor over by hand to make sure it's not gummed up.
Hope this helps!
