The Score Motor usually has a normally open switch at the 1C position with a red-white wire on one side that keeps it running until it reaches the next index position. It's often the only normally open switch at 1C. That switch is likely in parallel with all the other switches that can make the Score Motor run. If you can find the 1C switch, all the other switches will have the same two wire colors.

Quoted from Tonup69:

I noticed I can make the motor stop if I unplug the Jones connector to the door switches. Not sure if that means anything, though.

Sounds like the game thinks either a coin chute switch or the replay switch is closed, or otherwise shorted somehow. Rolf's experiment will likely prove that theory.

Quoted from Tonup69:

The K-Relay does not pull in or out when the door plug is pulled. The score motor stops, but the relay just stays open.

I think you're back to figuring out which switch is making the motor run. Did you ever follow through with this post in the last topic?

Quoted from MarkG:

If that checks out you could see if any of the listed relays are active when the Score Motor is running, or just block all of the switches with a piece of folded paper until you find the one that causes the motor to stop.

Quoted from Tonup69:

I did, but I used a test light.

I don't know what that means. Can you elaborate? Did you block all of the switches that can send power to the Score Motor with bits of paper at the same time? Did you check if their solder tabs are bent together or if there is a solder bridge between the switch blades?
