Thanks Erv. I have some life in this board now. I kept changing resistor sizes on the act. and aux switches trying to get the highest voltage on the pad. I have 2.6 volts on the aux. pad and 2.4 volts on the act. pad. I am using a 160 ohm resistor on the aux. pad and 100 ohm resistor on the act. pad. Any higher and the board locks up and won’ t respond to buttons. Any lower on the act. resistor and the blade ignites and retracts by itself randomly. Thanks to everyone’s help and Erv’s direction to “ pudis=1”.
