I just got a Full Throttle and set it up. Everything seems to work fine, except the auto-launch is behaving oddly. Upon starting a new game, it doesn't allow the left flipper rev-the-engine skill shot. Rather, it just auto-launches. Occasionally, it works normally. Not sure what's going on. I did a switch check, and everything seems to be behaving normally. I thought maybe the launch button switch was activating abnormally, but this does not seem to be the case. I have software version 1.3. Is this the latest? Other thoughts of next steps? Check out the link below. (I'm not touching the machine after I hit start.)

I'm guessing the switch under the ball when it sets in the shooter lane is our of adjustment. Be sure to check it with a ball, & not your finger.

You have the timed plunger setting to on. Turn it off and it won't auto plunge on start. It's under Adjustments > Full Throttle > Adjustment 1.

You are correct but technically this is the right way to do it so others can find the solution more easily in the future using the built in filters.

Timed plunger is set to 'Off', and I did a factory reset. Still doing this intermittently. Can anyone confirm that 1.3 is the most recent code?

1.3 is the latest version.

Do you have a shaker motor connected to the powerboard and it is turned on from within the game menu?

Hmm strange. Maybe try putting it into switch test and knock it around a bit to see if you get a switch to trigger.
