Hi everyone! I have just finished doing everything to my getaway and haven’t been able to get one thing to work... the coin door lights along with the start button will not light up. I was wondering if this can be caused by a loose wire or anything really. I tried new lights so it wasn’t that. Open to literally anything and I do know how to solder. Thanks in advance for the help

Two separate issues.

Start button is a feature lamp. Check the lamp matrix in the manual for wire colors. Bulb good ? Continuity of each wire from socket to board in the head ?

Coin chute lights are GI lights. Check bulbs, fuse, continuity of wires from socket to GI connector on board in the head,check if you missed a connector on the driver board.

Do you know which fuses to check? I’m new to all that stuff. If you could possible attack a picture or two that would help me so much!

Yeah, I could check the manual.

But then I'd rob you of the chance to learn.

I will help a little. 5 fuses, lower left area of the driver board are for GI. Biggest board in the back box. A good exercise to pull them one at a time and check with a meter, if none appear blown.

If you don't have a meter, get a cheapy. Don't know how to use a meter, Youtube is littered with short how to videos.

Maybe Check the connector on the coin door interface board for loose broken wires or the pins on it?

Can it also be the board?
