Never run 2005 MTH Premier F3 set, Remote won't add?

Just bought an MTH Premier F3 set from 2005 which is old stock but brand new. Battery is actually fine. No cutting out of sound or operation in conventional mode but my DCS remote will not find the engine to add. Any suggestions? I have a dozen PS2/3 engines, my wiring is star patterned and I've never had an issue adding engines.

Thanks for your help!

imo, a 2005 (that's 13 years old) battery is not fine.

One other thing to try, only put the lead “A” unit on the track with no other cars or engines anywhere. Only the lead unit has the electronics that controls whether the engine is found, the trailing unit are not needed for that.

Gerry,

By any chance, are you running DCS 4.2 or earlier and have lashups in the remote, and do you get the message ENGINE ERROR?

Barry,

I am running DCS 6.10, no lashups in the remote and I get "No Engine to add".

Thanks for your help.

GGG, when using Recover Engine, doesn't the remote ask you which engine you want to recover from the list of engines in the remote? I didn't think it was possible to recover an engine that was never added to the remote. How would this be done when the engine is not in the list? Thanks in advance.

Engine is now up and running through DCS remote! I wound up resetting the remote then using recover engine function which I had done previously over the weekend. I must have chosen the wrong TIU the first time.

Thanks everyone for the help!!
