NOTE:
 
YOU CAN put it as:  ActivateSignal(OutPut3)  I guess that must have changed, Brian might have changed it. It used to be that the Signals where ALL in caps (see wiki still up like that). But Hood pointed out that he has been doing it like the above, so I tried it and sure enough it does work that way........... so, I stand corrected, I was unaware that it had changed............

Ha!  Thanks for all of your help.

I just started having some really weird issues.  My Retract (M4) (output3) is back to turning on really quickly, then turning off.  The LED on the relay board goes bright for less than one second, then flashes very dimly.  I read 0VDC on the incoming 5V signal.  I don't have a problem at all with M3 (output 2).  Very weird... any ideas?

I had a typo a few posts up when I mentioned the ActivateSignal(OutputX) function.  I did type it the correct way in the macro.
