Racegun wiring/power problem

One of my Raceguns has had some wires come loose inside and will only sometimes respond to my attempts to turn it on or recharge it.
I believe it is because the wires down by the port are not connecting to the battery correctly. Anyone know how I can keep them connected and which wires are causing the battery(with juice in it I know) to not power the gun?

Thanx!

Which wires do you mean exactly ? The battery wires or the internal link cable wires ?

I believe it is the link wires,, would they cause the gun to not turn on?

It would be possible that you have a shortcurcuit somewhere, speaking of the keypad, I would check that. If that is 100% ok, check the battery wires.
If your battery wires are broken, you will have to replace the battery.

Upon further disassemballing and diconnecting the port wires from the board, one of the four wires has disconnected from the wiring connector piece (whit one that clips into board). Not being a genius at this type of thing, am I able to re connect this wire to the piece, or will I need to find new wiring?

Thanx,
Brackis

Edit: The yellow wire of the 4 that come from the port has been removed, but their is still wire fragments in the clip so the wire (which I have exposed at the end from the yellow coating) has could be reconnected, but won't be able to be.
