Default Traxxas Slash 1/16 NOT POWERING ON

Tried swapping batteries and messing with the receiver but got nothing. What I have right now is a good battery connected with the receiver taken apart both the ESC and steering servos are plugged in to the right channels. The funnt things is that it was doing this even before I took it apart because I must of had a faulty battery as my other identical Traxxas also started having problems. I got that one working now but with that one at least I would get a red light. Don't know where to go from here any suggestions would be appreciated.

Un plug ur steering servo... Then test again.
