Dear Chris Kelliher, Hi,
According to your explanation, i guessed that the electronic circuit for driving the motor of drill, has gone off. In such a case, the motor is either driven under variable frequency drive system, Power transistor (FET, IGBT may be used) or SCR control circuit. under the cover of drill there is an electronic circuit, which may be damaged. It should be rectified by some technical expert. here is a link of services provider,
If you are unable to reach the service center just download the form from the link above an fill it and shipped your part to the related company with free shipment. If you can check it personally then check it. i will guide you whatever possible. Service Milwaukee Tool

Milwaukee 2601-20, pull trigger, light comes on but chuck won't turn. It seems as though the chuck moves slightly but that's all

Is the charger working properly? Do you have any other M18 tools you can test the battery with? If the batteries are ok - these drills have micro-controllers in them (they also "drive" the battery guage LEDs). Short of taking it apart...not much you can do. Supposing it was apart - there's lots of videos on YT that show you how to check for cold solder joints, wiring problems, defective switches or controller boards.

I have a Milwaukee M18 cordless drill with a bit broken off inside and the chuck won't open.

Put your drill into reverse, and hold the chuck. With luck, that will loosen the chuck and the broken bit will fall out.
