Working on a Gotleib abracadabra and have everything going fine except for the pop up bumpers never seem to light up for 1000 points. What activates these lights? Have installed new bulbs in both and light contacts are clean. Also noticed the bonus light never advances from 1000. Wondering if these issues could be related? Thanks for any help

Quoted from Clueless:

What activates these lights?

This switch on the Target Bank Spot relay (I)

E is the Advance Bonus relay. Hopefully it's one of these two sw. or it gets more complicated.

Found both issues, target bank spot relay had a dirty contact that I missed which fixed the 1000 point bonus lights and the stepper unit inside had a pivot that was stuck and not allowing one of the onboard relays to advance the stepper. Guess I’m learning ‍♂️ Thanks for taking the time to help and for sharing you knowledge

It turns out that you aren't "clueless" at all. Well done!
