Hi. I'm helping someone with some problems on his Big Hurt (blind leading the blind I know). Got most sorted out, but the left slingshot doesn't fire. Leaf switches register, but the coil doesn't fire during game play or test mode. I put a multimeter on the leads to the coil and no current is coming through when it's supposed to fire (while it does on the right sling shot). I've officially reached the full extent of my knowledge. Just wondering if someone could offer some advice around steps to troubleshoot further. Note, it'll be at least a week before I can get back over to his place to do anything further. Thanks.

Morning bump. Anyone have a suggestion on where to start? Thanks in advance.

Trace the wire back to the previous coil in the chain and look for a break.

Will give it a look. Thanks.
