Make sure none of your servo or power wires are crossing or wrapped around any wires especially the antenna wire. Also what car or truck do you have and is it nitro or electric?

Default RE: servo

unplug the steering servo from the reciever and test the throttle. see if it twitches.
if it does, try the reverse. plug the steering back in and unplug the throttle servo. now see if the steering it twitching.
sometimes if one servo has gone bad, it will cause twitching in others.

also, make sure the batts in the truck and radio are fully charged.

and look for any nicks/damage to the servo wires, as well as the reciever antenna.
