Quoted from trimoto:

Which optos did you replace and why did you replace them?

The 10 opto board I assume? New or used replacement board?

Go into solenoid test and run the magnet motor test. Does it move? If not, check all the wires on the harness going to the motor for continuity. That harness moves a lot, so a wire or two breaking isn't unusual. One broken wire can intermittently cause what you're seeing.
