I think i remember reading this that stern got super lazy and i guess the hole drilling guy went on strike and since tournament mode was not used on dale jr games, they wired the start button to the lock down bar button.

#1452 43 days ago

No they aren't drilled for a start button. Start button is in the lockdown bar.
I don't have a picture of it..

Learned something new today. I guess no one else at the factory knew how to adjust the chuck on a drill. I would have thought the hole was automatically CNC'd out of the front panel. I'm curious to know if it was and then backfilled with a plug. Moving it to the lockdown bar is just dumb and lazy. If I had a Dale I would definitely do what Spiderpin did, or probably even drill out the cabinet and put it where it should be.

There was no hole drilled on mine. If someone wants to see inside of my cabinet I'm happy to share. I'm not changing mine.

Need some help identifying where a wire goes. I was getting a garage kicker coil malfunction, so under the playfield I see this loose orange/white wire. Can anyone tell me where it goes? I am sure it has something to do with it. Thanks!

Update. After tracing the orange/white wire back to the J8 on the backbox I also see a stray brown/blue wire. It looks like it came out of the idc connector?

Are you sure that's brown/blue? It looks dirty white/blue in the photo.

The manual for this pin is fantastic. It should help you narrow down what goes where. It can be grabbed right off the Stern website.

#1459 30 days ago

Yeah it is brown blue. You can see it in the first pic. The second is with a flash so it makes it whiter. I downloaded the manual and am looking through the 255 pages. Hahaha. I just hoped someone had a pic of theirs or had gone through this before to offer insight.

I am seeing that. Looks like that orange/white wire that isn’t connected on the other end is in it’s slot on the connector. I’m thinking someone just stuck a random color wire in there and connected them on the other end?

#1462 29 days ago

That's what I see in your picture.

Thanks guys. Will connect them and see

#1464 29 days ago

Update…. So I joined the orange wire to the brown/blue and nothing happened. Then I unhooked them and I hooked the orange/white wire to the coil and presto, it worked. Then as I stood there going over “why” I figured a previous owner probably had an issue with this brown/blue wire at some point and just bypassed it. The orange/white wire must have come off the coil and that is what started the whole process. It is fixed now and working perfectly….thanks for everyone’s help and hopefully this will help someone in the future.

#1465 29 days ago

Good to know it's working as it should be. Now head to garage. and get racing

Having a problem I can’t figure out on Grand Prix, I added a Flipper Fidelity speaker kit today and that should have nothing to do with the issues it now has. I’m getting three different error codes but all three of them work fine, however the up post in the top center of the playfield that acts as a diverter to the pop bumpers no longer activates in test mode or in game play. I seem to have checked everything I can think of but I’m stumped.

#1467 18 days ago

In addition, we checked the transistor and it fires the post but it still isn’t coming up in game.
