I installed the cruise commander M in my Lionel 6-18095 442 Atlantic. I located and soldered the wire from J 4 pin 1 serial data in, to Pin 2, of the ten pin connector on the R2LC connector, per page ten of the instructions.
I have been successful with this install 2 other times on my Lionel N&W 1218 Class A and my 4006 Big Boy.
All the command functions, motor control, couplers and smoke work fine, the issue is... no whistle, Bell, chuff crew talk tower talk ......... background engine noise is running.
I performed all the programming functions several times.
I also reinstalled all the original parts and it all works as before.
My R2LC is an -C06 per the label on the IC.
In the instructions page 3 the J4 connector shows pin 1 serial data in from R2LC-C08.
The tender has a 4 pin wire tether.... is the cruise commander pin 2, J4 connector serial data out used in this application?
is the revision C06 supported or any idea where I went wrong?
