The switch itself is new and the diode if good. I pulled the plugs from 1J10 and 1J8 from the CPU and put a test light on pin 7 and pin 2 respectively. (these are the wires that go to the right lane change switch) Closed the switch and have continuity.

I just got my CPU back from being repaired (for a different issue) and was assured everything tested as working 100%

Everything else on the game works as it should.

Am I missing something? Is there anything else I should be looking at?

Where's the switch? Is it on the flipper button or stacked with the EOS switch?

Stacked with the flipper EOS switch.

Do the other switches on that column and row work? If so it's not the CPU board.

Yes, every switch on row 3 and column 2 are working as well as everything else on this game. This is my last issue to figure out.

This switch does not pass the switch edge test.

What else to look for if the only 2 wires on this switch go straight back to the CPU?

Are the wires and diode definitely connected correctly?

Now you have raised suspicion. I replaced the switch with a new one and it had the diode installed. Even if I did get the 2 wire swapped would it make a difference?

I have continuity through the switch back to the CPU when switch is closed.

I'll be able to go home for lunch in a couple hours and take a picture and have another look.

Will report back.

The silver band has the green wire on it.

Problem fixed. Diode was reversed.

I wired the new switch exactly like the old one but I guess I assumed the diode would come oriented the same as the old.

Another lesson learned.

Thanks everyone!
