Nothing happens when I pull the trigger :\

My AEG does absolutely nothing when I pull the trigger. When I plug the battery in and pull the trigger, no struggle, no motor sound, nothing. It behaves as if I don't have a battery in. Does anyone know what is wrong or how to fix this? I believe it has something to do with the trigger contacts but I could be wrong.

I recently had that problem, and it turned out to be the trigger contacts. I would suggest checking them, though I am not an expert.

It's most likely a wiring issue. Check your fuse, motor connections, etc.

I've narrowed the problem down to a specific section of the wire that connects to the battery. When I remove this section and connect the gun directly to the battery the gun fires but when I put it back in the gun doesn't... Any advice on what to do?

Sounds like a blown fuse.

I believe you are referring to the part of your wiring that holds your fuse and when you unplug that and plug your battery directly in, it works fine. Your fuse might be blown, try and put a new fuse in and see if it cycles.

Tried with 3 batteries, and I also removed the fuse (circuit still completed) and it still didn't work. The fuse looks fine.

If you can, try to get a Mosfet in place of a fuse. It'll still protect your motor like a fuse, but it isn't ruined everytime you get a power surge.

What part of the wiring were you removing before and it made it work? Any way we can get a picture of that part of wiring? My opinion would be if the gun is working when you take that part of the wiring out then leave it out. It's not the fuse so my guess is it's some kind of extension wiring piece. Or you could buy a new piece if you need the extra length.

I have had a very similar problem before, and I had to get some new wire and connectors, and replace the bad section of wiring. It is not that hard to do in most parts of the wire harness.

Also check to see if your connector for that section of wire is bad or broken especially where the connector is attached to the wire. If it is a piece that gets unhooked frequently, that would be very likely.

Before you cut anything or what not make sure art the connectors are securely attached to the correct apparatus

This, if you are using tamiya connectors (white or clear~ish retangular connectors that come on 99% of all guns) the pins inside the housing are known to come loose and not form a connection when plugged into a battery. Try tugging gently on each wire and see if the metal pin comes out.

Quick disconnect pins are also known to snap and no longer form a complete circuit. If you have a multimeter, switch it to continuity (the ohm-meter setting with the speaker icon) and try to start isolating the break.
