Need Help With remote control of older Fastrack 0-36 switches

Hi, After a  15 year hiatus I decided to construct a layout using my old Lionel equipment.  I have a 180 watt Powerhouse, the 6-24130 Powermaster and a TMCC Command Base 6-12911 and a Cab-1. I have 3 Fastrack remote switches in the layout - 2 older 0-36 switches circa 2007 and one newer 0-36 with the command button.  The switches are powered with an old Lionel transformer, properly phased. I have a SC-2 that I am trying to use to throw the two older switches.  The new switch works fine.  I can't get the older switches to operate remotely with the SC_2.  They are wired properly.  If I jump the wires with the common, the switch throws properly. I have the hand lever switch installed and it throws the switches properly.  I am sure that I am missing somethingc- perhaps signal issues or a malfunctioning SC-2.  I only have conventional engines and only operate one train. I have no issues with using the CAB-1 to control the train. 

Any suggestions? Thanks.
