Add Bonus Switch (resized).jpg

Hello Pinside members, would like a little help for my Sure Shot. I'm attaching 2 pictures as when I lifted the playfield to replace a #47 lamp I found this wire pulled loose. Since then on startup sequence "Q" relay never fires, "Game Over" light & match numbers stay lit on backglass and ball return coil never fires. I believe this wire is the cause.

The wire on right side of pic goes somewhere, not sure where. The schematic shows going to "0" position on bonus unit but I don't see how as when the bonus unit advances the wire is not long enough to reach to the end. The other side of Add bonus switch (YEL-RED in schematic) ohms out good to "Z" relay. The wire pulled loose is SL-RED but not sure where it goes.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thought I would add operating instructions.

That wire probably connects to the metal frame of the bonus unit. It originally had a ring at it’s end and was mounted under one of the allen head screws on the advance coil bracket.
