Even if I don't do anything, the odometry increases alone. [closed]

Hello. I am making race car (f1tenth's) through Vesc module. However, during the calibration of odometry, we found that the x-coordinate pose value of odom increases at a constant speed without any action, even though the offset value of odom was set well.

May I ask if it is a hardware defect in the vesc itself or if it cannot be fixed?

i'm dying...

I'm not sure if this issue is entirely ROS relevant, posting it on Vesc forum would be alot more helpful. For the odom part please provide more info like who is publishing the odometry? How are you calibrating your odometry? Are you using some standard ros packages or is it your own package? Are you sure that your tf tree has been setup correctly ?
