Default Vxl 3s stampede 4x4 blinking red

My VXL 3s from my stampede 4x4 is blinking red and im using full charged lipo 3s battery,at first i can run the car but then the car got possessed and run by himself when i slowy touch the trigger,and then it blink red and i cant turn off by the esc,its needed to remove the battery to turn off.
I already reseted the esc,changed to sport and race modes,changed to lipo and nimh modes and nothing works,the button of the esc appears to be ok.

According to the owners manual. A slow blinking red means binding. Have you tried to bind the tx and rx togethr again? Thanks

The ESC doesn't bind, the receiver does. Blinking red means it's at LVC doesn't it?

Yes blinking red means LVC. I was just wondering if he had a binding issue since it moves slowly without applying any throttle. When in doubt you can always call TRX and they will help you. Thanks

SLOW RED BLINK IS LVC. FAST RED BLINK IS OVERHEAT. YOU DID BIND THETRANS/RECEIVER, RIGHT. AS FOR THE POSSESION I WOULD SEEK A PRIEST. OR CALL TRAXXAS

On the creeping forward thing, ThunderbirdJunkie was thinking he bumped his throttle trim
