Have a Goldeneye that just started having an issue where it won't properly start a game and pop a ball into the shooter lane. According to the diagnostics I've run, the 5-Ball Lock coil (#17 I believe) is not firing. I'm looking through the manual on but I am not seeing where that coil would be located? Are there two coils handling the movement of balls as well as the upkick into the lane?

Here's what it is doing currently...

I would check the wires on the trough assembly coil first.

Also check the connection to the lock coil located under the apron (coil 17).

Awesome, I am sure coil 17 is the key to this. It appears to not be firing, so I will dig back into it tomorrow and figure it out. Thanks for the help!
