If I lost the remote control to an r/c car, can I use another one? or how can I fix it? Answered

Do I need to replace a transmitter and receiver? if so how? Any other suggestions are welcome.

You will need one that is the same frequency, and with simmilar controls, or mod one with the same frequency to work. I've done this before, it works great! Hope i helped!

I have a remote that has stopped on one button. It’s the remote to my tv mount in my RV to bring it down works but I can’t use the remote to make it go back up. The frequency thing makes since but how do I know what that frequency is? And how do I find another frequency to use in the remote?

 i tried before but for the racing cars it has to be exact 27 mhz doesnt always mean 27 mhz
it could be 27.056 mhz so see if someone has a frequency scanner

Normally on the bottom of the car or in the battery door it has a sticker, you may need to open it though. If your really desperate, you could try to find someone/ somewhere that has a radio frequency detector.

Exactly the same will work. Similar may need tuning - I'd guess there's a "knob" inside which adjusts the frequency. But you'd have to find something that works in exactly the same way. L
