If the motor won't start, and the app is telling you there is an esc problem, you need to replace the bad esc. Contact a repair center and/or DJI.

The phantom 3 has a central unit with integrated esc right?

Not a direct answer but maybe it can help.

In case of blocking one or more propellers with for example a minicrash a safety feature comes in and you cannot restart the motors.
You first have to turn off the phantom for a few seconds, turn it on again and then you can restart your motors.
Maybe that this safety feature plays a role with your ESC.

Part of the reason given for the P3 ESCs being moved onto the main PCB is [status] communication.

Apparently there is an error and you will not be able to proceed until resolved.

ESC stands for electronic speed controller. We have 4 ESCs in P3 to control 4 motors speeds.
