I have several broken "Powered Up" M motors and I took one apart to see what was wrong. I ended up snipping off a section of the wire and re-soldering it back together but testing with an Ohm meter results in infinite resistance between the connector pins and the soldered points in the motor. So I took the connector apart (nearly destroying the thing), and I removed the wire and snipped an inch off. Using an Ohm meter now shows 0 resistance through the wire.
I have a problem putting the connector back together now. I put the pins back in place on the plastic pieces and then pressed the plastic pieces back in place with the hopes that the metal pins pierce the wires and allow for electricity to flow. It's not working.
Anyone here have any experience putting the connectors back together or pointers to resources on how people did it? I haven't found anything so far applicable for the M motor.
