Working on reviving a Monte Carlo

Found the 15pin molex (13 wires) under playfield. It originates from the playfield and is quite long. I assumed based on that it connects in the head. Looking in the head I've got nothing ‍♂️

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

Kinda hard to tell from the pic, but what color are the wires? Do you have the schematics? They should tell you what those color wires correspond to and where they go.

Rainbow these wires have multiple colors. Better pics

Perfect. Schematics for Gottlieb solid states are rather truncated, but if you have the manual there should be at least somewhat of a bit of information in there about what each color does. Do you have that handy?

There was a factory topper available for Monte Carlo. That wire loom plugs into it.

I had a Monte Carlo and that wire loom was bundled up inside the bottom of the back box.

That would explain the length.

Thanks soo much
