You can also pull the switch out, to enable power.
Since there is nothing to close it, this should get you by.

Quoted from gregdole7:

Are you guys saying if I just pull that switch out completely it will work?

If you pull the top switch, it will allow HV in the game, and since the coin door doesn't have the normal part to push the switch in, even with the coin door closed, you should be able to play a game.

The other switch tells the game that the coin door is open.

Quoted from LTG:

The yellow clip only came with a few titles that had the old switch that couldn't be pulled out.

And one of those games might have been Corvette. Corvette is the most irritating game to debug, especially the jiggling motor assembly because coil power must be on, yet you need to operate the coin door diag switches.

Quoted from gregdole7:

Disconnected all 4 cables from the top switch and it still does not work.
Any other ideas?
As I previously mentioned, high voltage works when the switch was pressed in.

Why did you disconnect the 4 "cables"?
That's the same as opening the switch, which will CUT power.

At the risk of sounding harsh Greg, you aren't listening.
Pull the switch outward. It will work.
You're a newbie around here. A few of us have been around the block before.

Quoted from PinballAddiction:

so you can play while waiting for your new part.

He can play right now...IF he simply pulls that switch outward. I don't mean REMOVE the switch, I mean instead of pushing on the switch, pull on it.
