Hey everyone. I hate to ask a question that seems to be addressed quite a bit but ive done a lot of reading and can't solve this issue. The coffin magnet isn't working and i get the technician alert to check switch #63. Here are some things ive done so far

1) Looked for loose or broken wires. None.

2) Reseated all the connections on the magnet card. Didn't help.

3) Most up to date software installed. Check!

4) Removed the entire magnet mechanism to see if there were any hidden broken wires. None.

5) Tried to run the diagnostic test - doesnt seem to do anything

6) I have an extra magnet card so i plugged it in without actually unscrewing the other one.l Doesnt fix the issue.

7) Fuse F7 light is lit

If anyone else can shed some light and point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

Did you check the magnet using a multimeter - check a thread I started:

Apparently it's supposed to be around 4.5 ohms.
