The pop bumper lights in my North Star quit lighting up this morning. When you go through the upper white rollover it actives the corresponding pop for 10 points, but they are not lighting. I checked all 5 bulbs and they are fine.
As I am schematically-challenged, where do I begin searching for the problem?

Quoted from HowardR:

If the corresponding 1 to 5 rollover lights are also out, the most likely cause is a broken White-Black wire feeding a make/break switch on the #1, #2, #3, #4, or #5 relay on the "10 Bank"[quoted image]

The white rollover light work. I triggered them for the picture to show the pops not lighting.

Quoted from HowardR:

Check the common wire that runs to all the pop bumper lights

You nailed it HowardR !!!!!
Ground wire was hanging loose from one of the pops.
Thank you!!!!!
