  • Did you just get this and the remote does not work?
  • Check the batteries and change as necessary.
  • Check the antenna on the remote and the receive Halo on the car itself. The halo is what receives the signals from the remote.
  • There is not a lot of reasons for the remote not work. They do get dropped and the circuitry starts to malfunction. The batteries and the antenna/Halo.

    • If you just got it and it is malfunctioning I would inquire about an exchange for one that works from the dealer or manufacturer. The things I listed are the common problems. It could be some major manufacture defect being new. If it were me looking at it, the way any tech would do it, is to test every single electronical component with a mulit meter and other appropriate meters to see what parts are failing.

Same problem. I called Thrustmaster yesterday and they said that they're working with Nascar to fix the problem. They couldn't give me any guarantees that it would be fixed, though.

I bought the battery operated with remote control ferrari f430. My battery died. I received a new battery from the manufacturer and when I went to switch them out, the wires are welded to the existing...

hi, easy operation but first if the car is fairly new, call the company and ask their advise, cutting wires will probably void the warranty.
1.cut the wires and strip between the old battery and the car.
2. strip and connect the new battery by twisting together and securing with wire nuts available at any hardware store on the planet, like these

4. its a good idea to reenforce the wire nuts with duct or electrical tape after they are tightened.
good luck!

When your all other buttons work only the mute button doesnt work.The problem lies with the mute button only.Not with programming.

Problema with thrustmaster racing whell

this is because the 2 pedals are acting as buttons. so wen u press them then computer thinks ur pressing a button all way down instead of rotating an axis. you have to somehow find a way to tell computer that you have pedals and that the axis have to be callibrated in control panel. i have no idea how this is done though.

I am a transcriptionist who is remotely accessing a work computer

I looked a the Infinity IN-USB-1 foot pedal, thanks. I would go out and buy a second foot pedal for home then you can remote your work pc by using the foot pedal from home. Make sure you install the drivers for the foot pedal at your home pc. If this doesnt work, you can always take the pedal back to the store. I figure that If you took away your mouse from your home pc, you could not move your mouse on the work pc. It maybe the same with the pedal. Let me know if it works.

Remote control does not work

Look at the IR emitter in the front of the remote through a digital camera, if it blinks, you have the wrong code. If it doesnt, you have a bad remote.
