    I got a Gold Wings that was not working and have been hammering away at multiple levels of issues. Solved a bunch of problems with the ground mod and the daughter card replacement. Now the game will play perfectly with the first ball but after that the second ball will not get pushed into the lane and fuse 11 is blown again. The solenoid tests OK. I'm at a loss as to where to look next. Thanks for any help and happy holidays!

    Did you go through all of the recommended fixes on pinwiki?

    I'm not sure if I got them all. I did both the interconnect cable and Todd Tuckey ground mods. I also swapped out the daughter card for a Pinitech replacement. The voltages looks good. I found that the outhole never fires so maybe that solenoid is toast. It has proper resistance but maybe something else is wrong.

    Thanks again for the help.

    More data: I swapped out the coil with a known good one. (so I'm sure the diode is good) Same issue. As soon as it pops the ball into the lane the fuse blows. No other sensors or anything else seems to be engaged.
    Also the outhole now works fine - broken wire.

    Any ideas would be great!
