Yes it routes the battery voltage up to the game card so the game can monitor it.

Thanks...i did notice the game card has a battery on it? I've desoldered the battery on the main board and I'm saving it. When I reuse it reckon I should remove the wire?
Not sure of the parameters on when to use it?

Don't think it is just a wire, if i remember rightly, there is a cut track on the main mpu that goes with the mod.

As Matty suggested, you have a Section 240 Scorp4 board! You should find the wire and two cut tracks on the back of the board!! Section 240 boards are backwards compatible with older non-S240 machine... All to do with the new rules and regs bollocks!!
