I was working on my new Batman Forever and see that one of the bulbs has been disconnected. One of the leads (the yellow one) is still attached, and the red one has been detached. I looked around nearby and found 2 red wires that have been cut at some point. Should I just connect one of those to the bulb? Does it matter which? Does the lamp socket look like it needs to be replaced? Thanks for your help.

I see where the socket will go. Looks like that big oval insert.
Look in your schematic to make sure wiring is correct but the two red are likely supposed to be together (daisy chaining power or ground)
Check with meter for voltage instead of guessing. If it happens to be solenoid voltage bad things will happen.
So a new machine nice.
You could go in lamp test and do the voltage checks.

look at the other matrix sockets around it and see what color is attached to the ground. Then you will see if those red ones suppose to go to.
