Hello,
Does anyone know what connector runs the backbox GI for Blackout? The GI is out and I’m guessing it’s a connector. I checked all fuses and they are good. Any other suggestions on what it could be? Thank you.

There is a relay that flashes the GI for when you achieve Blackout - it could be the relay is partially bad or the wiring was modified there. The GI in general runs off the connector on the Power supply board.

No GI fuse good:
locate the 2 wire connector at the GI relay check that it is plugged in.

Sure, get out your meter and divide the circuit up into sections. See where the power drops out for the GI. You could also use jumper wires to bypass the relay to make sure that isn't the cause of the GI not coming on.
