I just noticed my captain fantastic isn't switching the pop bumpers and Open Gate when going through the middle lane. What controls those? I'm not with the game right now but I fell pretty certain it was scoring when it went through.

Well I have found that the controll for the pops switching is the Alternator relay. It was hidden under the playfield. Now I can't figure out why it won't activate. It doesn't even try to energize when the top rollovers are pressed. The scoring works though.

Match unit in the backbox, it has a contact for switching the bumper lights (and other ones)

Thanks. We'll check that out. I couldn't figure out what controlled that Alternator relay at all.

Looks like you get a bingo. There is a wire completely Unsoldered back there. I'm sure that is the problem.
