    That is a sign that you have a short. You can search the market place or it will cost you $55+ shipping it to Traxxas for replacement.

    If you do have a sticky-button-(usually all you'll get is a red-blinky) Easy fix............Spray the button with WD-40 and hit the button real close with compressed-air. Done-
