Default Redcat racing blackout xte blinking red light

I bought a Redcat Racing Blackout XTE a few weeks ago. I have used it about 6 times with no problems. I used it 2 days ago and it was fine. I went to use it today and now it doesn't work. The red light on the esc is flashing and I also tried to hook up the battery directly to the motor and nothing happens. I haven't cleaned it since I bought it so it is a little dirty. Does anyone have an idea on what could be wrong with it? I'm a total newb at Hobby grade RC cars so any help would be great.

Sounds like the battery is flat . Do you have access to a multimeter ???
Also double check the esc is not in lipo mode ( guessing you have a Nimh battery ) and your esc wires are plugged in correctly .
