Why Is My RC Car Remote Blinking?

Having a remote-controlled car can be an exciting and thrilling experience. But if the remote is blinking, it can be a source of frustration instead. When you want to drive around with your RC car but the remote keeps blinking, it can be quite confusing and annoying.

There are several reasons why your RC car remote might be blinking. The most common one is that the batteries in the controller are low.

This is easily remedied by replacing the batteries in the controller with fresh ones. If this doesn’t work, then there could be something wrong with the internal circuitry of the controller itself, or even a problem with the communication between the car and its receiver.

Another possible reason for your RC car remote blinking is that there might be some kind of interference from other electronic devices in your vicinity. This could include cell phones, radios, televisions or any other electronic device that transmits signals on similar frequencies as your RC car remote’s frequency. If this is the case, then you should try moving away from these devices to see if this helps resolve the issue.

If none of these solutions seem to work, then it might be time to contact a professional for help. They will likely be able to diagnose and fix whatever problem is causing your RC car remote to blink so you can get back out on the road in no time!


Understanding why your RC car remote is blinking can help you troubleshoot and fix it quickly so you can get back to having fun with your RC vehicle again! In most cases, it’s an easy fix such as replacing batteries or relocating away from interfering electronics, but in more serious cases consulting a professional may be necessary to properly diagnose and repair any issues that may arise within its circuitry or communication systems.
