In all the rigamarole I went through to program an engine a ran across a thought about making sure the TIU is set to one.  Barry has confirmed for programming this is not necessary, only if recovering an engine.

In an attempt to reset an extra TIU to Address one I found it absolutely refuses to be changed.  At first, not responding to a remote, I thought it was a transciever board issue.  Upon reseating the board I got the unit talking with the remote, but it still won't change the address.

I have tried using power on fixed one, aux., tethered and untethered.  What could possible be the problem.  Thanks.

Is the address you're trying to edit to available?    If  the address has  already been added to the remote  before editing you can't do it.

 Another route is.. factory reset the tiu. This will change the address of the  tiu  to tiu #1.

Be careful deleting a tiu. All the engine associated with that tiu will be deleted.

I have factory reset the TIU numerous times and it stays at 2, and it is the only TIU in the remote as I have reset the remote as well.  They are not tied to track, have no engines loaded, etc., just a TIU and Remote.  I get TIU ADDR ERROR, if that means anything.

Well there's something wonky . A factory tiu reset restores the ID to TIU #1.

A feature tiu reset keeps the TIU address . (whatever it might be)  

A remote reset adds tiu #1 by default so unless you delete it you can't edit to tiu #1.

 Maybe it's time to check out the number of red leds blinks on the tiu. the  number of blinks is the actual tiu number.

 Back to the beginning.. How many red led blinks . That's the actual tiu number.  If you reset the remote all you should have to do is add tiu  #2..   You should get tiu #1 not found, Tiu #2 found if a 2 blinker. 

TIU blinks twice, remote finds it with a read as 2.  If I add 2 and delete 1 it will not change 2 to 1.

Wonky again.    There' s  something definitely wrong .  The   "read" finds the tiu so both tiu & remote are communicating with  each other.    

 Maybe the tiu software reload V5 (as George suggested) will fix the frustrating problem....   If you have all the stuff handy it shouldn't  take long for a reload.  Good luck.

Charly,

I've only seen this once before. In that case, the TIU had to be repaired.

My suspicions also, and as long as it does all else without problems, it can stay 2!  lol.  It's a third TIU, and a backup more or less, so not critical.  The other two are fully functioning so it can be worked around.  It's that OCD gene I have that makes this a PITA.

Thanks.
