Hi, Recently purchased a set of MTH Proto 3 Lo-V subway cars (30-20395-1) and am not able to shut the interior lights off in DCS mode with a TIU using the app, the option is there but nothing happens when I choose to turn off interior lights...all my other MTH proto 3 engines allow me to do so. Anyone have any info on thus issue? Thanks so much in advance.

What is the MTH item number? What lights can not be controlled in DCS mode? Headlight/taillight? What DCS system do you have? TIU? DCS Commander?

Your not giving enough information. It’s Proto-3 got it.  What lights are you trying to Turn on or off? 

Interior lights

You should be able to turn your headlight/taillight on and off from your handheld remote or WIFI.  On some locos, you can control marker lights, cab lights, mars lights. There is no control for interior (passenger) lighting.  The item number 30-20395 comes up empty at MTH.

I believe all the interior light are still on track power and bulbs.  The number board, HL, and any identifying lights should be led and sequence.  But they may not be controllable even if there is a softkey as Subway are typically a basic set up.  G

Yea, this makes sense as there is a soft key but as you mentioned it would be the 1st subway set I have to work that way...was hoping since it was my 1st ps3 subway set the lights would act like all my other ps3 (not subway) engines...<sigh>
