Why is my remote control not working?
The car successfully powered on. However, it is not responding or moving in sync with the remote control.
The GEAR’D UP RC Ford Mustang GT is a remote controlled car released in 2014 and is sold by Jam'n Products INC. It's Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) is B00NE4NTYS. A similar car exists with the same design, but the other car is marked with police colors instead rather than the red and white colors that this model has.
Well, there are a few possibilities why the car is not responding to the remote control.
The first is that the batteries in the remote are dead. If the batteries are dead, power will not flow to the controls or transmitter. To fix this, you can replace the batteries. For instructions on how to replace the batteries, please see our Remote Batteries Replacement guide.
Another possibility is a loose wire inside the control. The remote works when electricity flows through the control. For the electricity to flow, it needs direct contact between two conductors inside the controller. If the wires are disconnected, you will have to replace the board in the remote. To replace the board, you can go to our Circuit Board Replacement guide.
If you have multiple cars, you can test the remote by using it on the other car. If the other car will work, then the issue is with the car not the remote. In that case you can take a look at the guides for repairing the car.

None of the answers take the radio part into the account. Somebody has been jamming RC cars on 27mhz in Phoenix AZ using modified ham equipment, I even recorded it and posted it on Facebook. Check with your radio, tune it to 27147 khz, and if you hear beeps from the remote control, something else is wrong. If you hear music(like I did) you have to tune your RC car to a different frequency.
