Is this a brand new ESC? Chances are you just need to calibrate it. If it's an older ESC I would attempt to re-calibrate it and if that doesn't work then I would consider replacing it with a different brand of ESC. I haven't had much luck with any of dozen or so budget brands of ESC's that I have used in the past, most do well for about 6 months or so, then give up the ghost after too many hard impacts

How to program the Turnigy Trackstar 80A Turbo Sensored Brushless ESC

● Hold the set button and switch on the ESC
● Solid Yellow LED indicates ready to calibrate NEUTRAL
● Leave throttle neutral, press SET, yellow LED flashes while reading NEUTRAL
● Solid Orange LED indicates ready to calibrate Full Throttle
● With throttle to full, press SET and the Orange LED will flash while calibrating
● Solid Red LED indicates the ESC is ready to calibrate reverse
● With throttle in full reverse, press SET and the Red LED will flash while calibrating
● When the ESC is done calibrating full reverse it will flash all three LEDs in sequence to indicate programming is done.

If it is the turbo model it is sensored only, make sure sensor cable and sensored motor are both good.
