Quoted from Jakers:
Yes, it is on a premium. I just went into the glider test menu and sure enough, when I move the glider the back half of the GI pulses a bit. It doesn't go out and reset but the back half definitely pulses like it looses a bit of power. That's so frustrating and it also looks like there's no option to disable the glider. Is it possible to unplug the glider (while it's in the middle position) and still play the game? I've only played 8 games on this thing. I'm still on code 1.11. Haven't had a chance to update yet.
lapsedgamer what was your final fix for the problem?
I would echo what HookedOnPinonics said, You should be able to unhook the connectors underneath and move to the middle then work with Stern and distributor to get the replacement assembly, I feel your pain as I was down after about a dozen games out of box but I’ve played a few hundred without issue after the replacement. Good luck!
Edit: I would also recommend updating as they did change some code with max servo distances, potentially effecting this issue
