Question about Maisto Rock-crawler Remote Control 4wd Truck

1 Answer

Just bought this truck this evening, got it home, put brand new batteries in it, and it wont go unless you have the controller right next to it, and then it will go 2 ft away and stop. Have tried all different channels and going outside away from possible interference. So now what?

Sounds like you got what I call a defective one. I usually return for a replacement when possible. We got a couple of these trucks for the kids at Christmas. We ended up having to send one back (defective) b/c the wheel alignment tab was missing so the truck wouldn't go straight. The other one only started acting up after my son played in the water with it. But at first they both worked funny until we put the antenna, the one that's on the truck, into a plastic tube to hold it up straight. Don't know if yours has that or not, but our tube was in the bag with the instructions. Good luck!

Put a brand new battery in 2000 bonneville and still wont turn over

Alternator and starter solenoid. Pontiac has fuse links built in to the wiring harness. One is near the alternator, another in the big red wire going to the fuse panel. If the dome light comes on then the fuse links are good so look at the starter.

New battery In mercedes no power

I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Has your alternator belt broken or alternator not charging the batteries? Check amps output from the alternator aswell it maybe undercharging them. Make sure all battery connections and earths are clean and their mounting points are clean. Is it the correct battery for the car?

My alternator keeps going out

The voltage regulator isn't being turned on when it is need

The challenge it to look at wiring diagrams & see what controls it

Jumping a dead battery is a dangerous thing to do

Batteries require they be fully charged before being put
back into service- to continue any testing

If you even jump a car made in the last decade,
you may smoke the electronics

On newer cars you disconnect the battery, to charge
it alone from the vehicles systems

Wont turn on unless you take battery out and put it back in.

I hate even suggesting this but, I ran into the same problem with a Canon Elan IIe film camera. The Canon batteries were getting expensive so i bought off brand at the local Costco store. Same battery same voltage but 1/4 the price. What I did to fix the problem was put a single small strip of masking tape on the bottom of the battery closed the battery compartment door and everything worked as it should until I need to replace the battery again.
