I just completed a complete restoration of my funhouse. Everything is working perfectly but can't enter the initials for high score. the flipper coils were rebuilt and work great but the test report says the flippers aren't working and i don't think the CPU sees the flippers. where to start?

Check all the connectors on the CPU.

Same issue trying to use both flipper buttons?

Your game has the WPC board set?

Check the power driver board. Specifically U7 and U8, the signal for the flipper buttons runs through there to tell the CPU board they are being pressed. It's not uncommon for those to fail.

Quoted from atrainn:

It's not uncommon for those to fail.

But it is uncommon for both of them to fail.
Good lead though.

First, as pinballmaniac40 mentioned, does your FH have the WPC board set in it?
Second, is your driver board a -1 version, with the flipper relay "cube" on it?
Third, does your MPU show any alkaline corrosion on it? There are a couple of traces that lead to the 4N25s on the driver board (via the ribbon) that can be compromised.
