Well I had to do mine just last week. I too did something similar to what you have here. Only I cut the entire back cover off with a exacto knife & picked out all the Goop covering the board , Simply zapped me some new wires on & the Shoe gooed the back cover back in place. Looks just the same as it did before , but has new wires, from the inside - out

Send it back to AMB! They were pretty good with replacing mine. My transponder was a few years old and out of warrantee. I sent it in and spent $47 for a brand new one. I have no complaints with AMB's customers service!

I wonder why they "only" offered me $10 off a new one, mine was out of warranty. I tried to fix it (wires) & failed miserably.

I had a wire come off inside the case and sent it back and thats the deal I got $10 off a new one. I went with it but made shure they sent the old one back and I was able to fix it. Now I am up to three of them.

Thanks for the diagram for wiring Bob. Saves me from having to send in my transponder. Opened it up, soldered new wires in, and it works like a champ again. No more worries about missed laps. Only wish I had done it sooner.
