Hey Guys, I need a little help here. I'm hoping to re-pin this J115 on my WPC Getaway. I have no lights on my back box or coin door. The top pin appears burnt. My problem is the wire waves in and out. Is there a way to utilize the molex I already have or do I have to order specific molex for the connector?

Make a y adapter and solder it to the wire to split one wire to two. Heatshrink the y.

I was thinking of doing that, but it would be 4 Y adapters and would kinda look like crap. Doesn't the solder under the board join the connectors together anyway? Maybe I don't have to utilize every slot.

It's probably done this way partially to spread the load so one pin doesn't burn.

That wiring harness might work nicely.

Quoted from trk12fire:

They doubled up on the pins on that connector to save on wire. 1 wire fed 2 pins. The harness above runs a separate wire to each pin.

I was able to fix a portion of the lights by jumpering the green wires. A trace was broken. The rest will probably be fixed by the new harness. I reached out to the company and they said they make a specific harness for Getaway. The one pictured is slightly different. Thx for the suggestions. We’ll see if this works.

I forgot to get back to everyone. The new harness worked and came in the coolest box ever.
