Have you gone through the electrical system and checked all connections yet? If not, take the receiver box off and make sure everything is plugged in properly, then try turning it on again.

Do you have any other RC parts? Like an actual receiver pack or a 4aa battery holder that isn't on the truck?

May just be a bad switch, but it's hard to test without one of the above.

Are you turning on the transmitter as well? Does the red light on the transmitter light up bright? Is the crystal in the transmitter and the receiver? Are they tagged with the same color tab?

Like I said, it's hard to do without a separate receiver pack with a plug on it. You would need a voltage meter.
