Motor Problems

My team is currently building a new robot from scratch for our next competition.

Once we started programming the base and the lift, everything went well. Two days later, the base wheels twitched or didn’t move at all when we used the controllers.

When we used the online window to check the error, but the wheels moved just fine. After we switched some of the motor ports, the base worked fine.

Later on, we built the intake and we had the same issue we had with the base, but on two ports that hadn’t been used by either the base or the lift. Any help here?

The problem you are describing could have many causes, but my best guess is that you have a short in a cable or a loose connection somewhere.

Try replacing all of the cables/motors for the “bad” mechanism and see if that makes a difference. If so, it is likely a bad cable.

Let me know if this solves your problem,
