No, just the stepper motor is erroring. Coil #2 has nothing to do with it. Parsed correctly, it should read "Stepper motor number two malfunction". They just call it a coil because the error is set up for coils, but covers motors as well. It just says "[part that failed] coil malfunction". That being said, it may in fact be your relay, which has a coil, that is malfunctioning. You need to run a test of the stepper motor in test mode.

If none of them work, how is your 12v? Should be Connector 16 pin three, according to the manual.

Okay It sounds like it may be a physical problem with the bug. A loose wire could happen, but it's kind of unlikely. It's been like 4 years since I worked on one of these machines, but I remember the bug being really strange even when working correctly. Check out the shaft the bug rides on, and make sure it's not damaged or pitted at all.

I guess I should make clearer, too, that if it's not a physical problem, it's more likely to be a problem with the circuit board, like the transistor not working. Wires do fail and short, but a lot less than transistors.
