headlight and ditch-lights have stopped working on my brand new front engine of my AK RR F7 AA set.  I think this started when it went over a Fastrack Operating track on my layout.  The rear A unit headlight works fine, and the B units work fine.  The front headlight on the REAR A unit works fine when I change directions.

Does anyone know the "return to factory settings code" I use to reset it the engine?  I have already reset the engine according to the instructions in the book, but that has no effect.  I have a list of the factory codes that you press after AUX 1, but neither code "1" nor code "2" seem to reset it.

I would like to try and get this fixed without having to send it to Lionel for warranty repair.

Thanks Marty, I have tried "Aux 1 then pressing 2" and I did it only with the front unit on the track.  Yeah, I see that the manual says it should only take pressing the engine assigned # and then set (with the engine switch set on program), but that has no effect at all.  David

With the engine in normal operation mode.  Press AUX 2.  See if it lights.

Marty, thanks for the idea to press Aux2 in regular operating mode.  Pressing Aux 2 made the engine start running in superslow forward motion.  It also caused the interior cab lights to come on.  It also gave me a "screen" on the legacy controller I had never seen before, with button icons, some of which I had never seen before.  However, the front headlight did not come on.  I wish I had videoed what happened so I could send it to you. But the new screen that came up on Aux 2 disappeared after two cycles.

Any other ideas to get the front headlight working?  I really appreciate your help so far.  David

Pushing and holding AUX2 brings up the lighting menu.  Not sure why all the other stuff happened.  Tapping AUX2 turns on and off the headlight normally.
