Default No temp reading.

I had to take apart my 8ight 2.0 RTR to tighten the flywheel nut and now I dont get a temperature reading on the TX.

What should I look at to try to find the problem?

There are two black connectors that come out of the receiver box; one of them attaches to a wire that runs up to the heatsink of the motor (your temp sensor) and the other attaches down by the flywheel/spur gear (your RPM/speed sensor). If you hooked both of them back up when you reassembled the car, perhaps you have the connectors swapped (ie temp sensor plugged in to the RPM port on the receiver). It wont hurt anything if that is the case, you just need to swap them.
