R/C car wont go in reverse

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by Leonard Caillouet, May 8, 2005.

  1. It is broken. Take it to your local fix-it shop that does repairs on RC
    cars. Maybe you could download a manual for it with detailed instructions
    on how to take it apart and fix every conceivable problem that might occur
    with it. Perhaps your local parts distributor or RCpartsRUS had the part in
    stock.

    Seriously, try not walking into walls. The dizziness should go away soon
    and you will be able to move the lever in the reverse direction again.

    After hitting a wall, my car will now only go forward and turn but no
    longer goes in reverse. The reverse lamps don't light up anymore
    either.

    Any thoughts?

    Any change of some more information about the car? Is it something bought
    off the shelf? Secondhand?
    Does the car have seperate speed controller, reciever and servos? If so,
    what are makes and models are they?
    It might be something as simple as a setting's needs to be reset.

    You haven't told us enough information to be useful, what sort of RC car? Is
    the speed controller electronic or mechanical? How's the inside of the car
    look?

    The fwd/rev motor is usually driven by 4 transistors in a H-bridge
    configuration. Assuming there are no physical breakages, I'd say one
    or both of those transistors is faulty.
