Are all 3 kickers supposed to fire any time you drop the ball in one of them?

Let me clarify my last post, I did some more messing with the machine.
Seems like all three kicker switches trigger the right kicker no matter what.
But not the other way around.

Also in the coil test, as soon as the solenoid expander light turns and it gets to that section of the test, the right kicker turns on, and stay on, until the test passes the expander section.
Which will probably explain why the coil that was in it, was on the verge of being melted.

So from what I can tell any time that expander relay is physically active, the right kicker gets activated.

Any clues?
Maybe the expander board is shot? Sometimes it doesn't work so great and I get a little buzz out of it.
But I'd hate to just throw $50 at it mindlessly.

I feel like I fix one issue, create another every time I work on this machine.
So at some point in my testing and work the top left 3 flashers stuck on (ones on the playfield).
Had a tip102 on hand so last night I swapped it out at q19.
Fixed the lights staying on problem.
Also doesn't appear that triggering any kicker, kicks the right one anymore.
Although it does still stay locked on in coil tests.
Now another problem showed itself.
A whole bunch of switches including every stand up target in the center, all try and reset the left bank of drop targets any time you set one off.

Edit: So I messed with it before work (which I should not be doing).
If I disconnect the right kicker, everything works fine (except for that kicker).
It's a new coil, old one was crispy.
For the hell of it, I changed the diode, same result.

Also according to the manual, the top left bright lights that I had an issue with and associated with the right kicker.

Well, I put the old coil back in the right kicker and everything works fine.
This is the original (although the one installed in my machine had 3 prongs). https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/AN-26-1200
An AN26-1200, which I guess was discontinued and replaced by AO 26-1200, which is what I used.

I did order the expander relay, it just sounds and works awful after a couple kicks in a row. Not to mention, the plastic cover is broken off.

Now I have the left and right lamp arrows out.
Little more adjustment on the mushroom and maybe I can play a game with the glass on.
