Default Servo troubles

I was riding my shockwave in the snow today. When i was brining it in. The steering went left and stayed that way. When i turn off the power pack, i can move it, but when i turn it on it goes back to the left. My controler steering adjuster is fine whats wrong?

you probably got water in it and shorted it out. you could take it apart and try to dry it out and see if i works but i woudnt give your hopes up. Next time seal it with some silicone around all the openings

If your sure you didnt strip the servo arm then servo damage is most likely.

Take the servo arm off & try it.

Drying out the servo may help but will probably have to send it in or replace it.
