I had heard that if a Command Equipped Locomotive did not see Command signals, it assumed it was to work as a Conventional Locomotive and hence since there was 18 volts on the track, it would take off at full speed.  What confuses me though is you say all other commands are accepted and acted on by the Locomotive.  This tells me that it is sensing the command signals.  The way my Locomotives work is I turn my command bases on.  I am using TPC from IC Controls and I do not think Lionel's since they are essentially the IC Control unit work differently, I address the TPC to turn on the 18 volts to the track.  All my locomotives then respond with their Lights going on.  I then address individual Locomotives with the ENG and ID# and Boost.  The sounds activate and then the Locomotives respond to the various features on my Legacy touch screen and respond to the Throttle.  Your engine does not react like this.  Are you using Legacy?  If you are you might want to check and make sure the properties of the Locomotive are correct.  Access the "INFO" button on the side of the display and review the settings.
