    Anyone know where the "power on pads" are located on the MacBook Air 13" 2013 logic board?

    I have a non starting machine in front of me, just wanna try to hard start it before I take it to the shop.

    Thanks!

    Did that before I wrote this post. Couldn't find anything.

    However, after a lot more googling I found this:
    https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/153088/Power+button+does+not+work.

    You have to short pin #5 on the keyboard ribbon cable with ground.

    I don't have anything that small to short it, and there's still warranty on the machine so I'll take it to the shop tomorrow.

    Thanks,
    Andreas
