Lane Changer Problems

760 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  MrFlippant
I have a straight lane changer, on one of the lanes the flipper can be activated and moves to allow the car to change lane, but when the next car approaches it wont move back, so that car also changes lane. Flipper can be reset by hand. Have taken the back of and all parts look to be connected correctly and no loose wires.

As it moves in one direction I assume its not the sensor, anybody else had this problem or got a solution, don't really want to spend £30 on a new one.

these xlc are usually ultra reliable.Try pushing the car across the xlc rather than driving it.

First thing i do if one does start to play up is get the vacum out and hoover across the section,9 times out of 10 this usually resolves the problem.

As it moves one way but not the other i would point the finger at one of the pushrods that exits the solenoid and is not engaged into the flipper but you say you have looked inside so all should be ok...

I am sure you will get this going again but if all else fails and you are uk based i have a spare xlc board complete with solenoid packs i could send you for a small fee..Just drop me a pm if you are in need..
