Unhappy Broken Controller

My SCX controller has stared acting as a brake rather than an accelerator. When i turn the power on the car is a full power and by pressing the accelerator is slows the car down. Does anyone know what's wrong and how it can be fixed?

Have you changed anything since it worked correctly? ... redone any of the connections to the track for example.

on my track, which is positive polarity, if you put the red wire on the white post, the controllers will act exactly like you describe - full power when the trigger is in the "off" position and braking when the trigger is depressed.
