Any chance someone can tell me the color wiring pattern. Bottom connector on the j5 connector on the solenoid driver or the p5 on the new master solenoid board. I got them all firing now but in the incorrect order. I think that is where the issue lies now. Any help is greatly appreciated.

This is for Bally 8 ball

From the schematic it looks to be the black/white is the left most pin (then go from there)

EDIT: looks like some colors may have changed you may have to go to the locations on your playfield to match the wire color to the termination point ( ie. "side return kicker" )

is the j5 plug keyed? looks like it's backwards.

Making progress. My struggle has always been the left side switch solenoid when it you lose the ball down the ramp when it hits the switch and fires.

The other one that is killing me is the ball return to the plunger solenoid when you lose the ball to shoot it back over to the plunger. I replaced the switch and the wire on the solenoid is brown and yellow. I test continuity. I cannot figure out where for the life of me where this goes. You guys have been fantastic on this board. I really appreciate the help.

Keys are your friend. I like to mark them clearly with a sharpie.
