Hi,

I am trying got get my smart car working, but I can`t find any solution, although it seems to be a popular problem.
After turning on the car the lights are going on, and the wheels are pointing left. The remote goes on, but none of the LED's are on or blinking.

I tried already:
- compiling the sketches (Arduino Uno for the car and Arduino Nano for the remote) without beeing attached
- checking the contacts with a multimeter
- checking the whole connections multiple times

Prosperties for uploading the sketch:
Arduino Uno --> Board: Arduino/Genuino Uno, Port: COM5 (Arduino/Genuino Uno)
Arduino Nano  --> Board: Arduino Nano, Prozessor: ATmega328P (Old Bootloader) Port: COM4

Is there any other idea? I would apreciate any help.

Thanks
Andreas

Update I (2019-09-20): I reduced the problem to lack of communication (https://www.adeept.com/blog/tuto ... tion-will-fail.html)
Update II (2019-09-20): I uploaded the code I used as an attachment.
Update III (2019-09-22): I tried the latest version as suggested (https://www.adeept.com/learn/detail-4.html)
Update IV (2019-10-03): It worked after I tried new  NRF2401 modules (https://www.amazon.es/dp/B06XJN4 ... 1_185740151_TE_item)

Thanks for the reply. This is not it. I uploaded the code, but there is no difference.
Is it possible I broke somehow the NRF2401 Module? I think this is my next try is buying some new ones.
This is getting really frustrating as it is my first project...

If there is any other idea, I'd apreciate it.
Thanks
Andreas

I hope this is going to be helpful to someone else, as it killed a lot of time and motivation for me.
