Thanks in advance for any assistance with my issue.
My F14 fires several coils when start button is pressed. As if performing a ball search. Display does not indicate balls missing on display. Games does not start. Only continues to fire coils as mentioned.
Balls are loaded and recognized in switch test.

Lift up the playfield and take a look at the start up button switch,check the wiring going to that switch and test the diode on that switch with meter

It is firing multiple coils when you hit the start button because it is thinking balls are stuck somewhere. Strange thing about some system 11 games is that they dont always let you know on the display that a ball is missing in the trough. Make sure you have the right number of balls in the trough.

If correct number of balls are installed, go into the switch test and test the start button and the trough switches, making sure only the one switch registers when pressing said switch.

F14 TomCat requires 4 balls in trough.
