Hey guys I need some help. New sd 40-2 rear markers and head lamps don't work. The number boards are light. Any thoughts?
An actual item number and maybe the manufacturer is really handy here. I'm assuming it's Legacy?
John it is 1933142
Have you tried the Aux-2 button. It switches off and on the lights. From your manual:
I have the Legacy version, 6-82285.
Press and hold AUX2, this will bring up the additional lighting control menu. You can turn on/off Mars light, class lights, ground lights, etc. depending on the way your locomotive is equipped. If you have Lionel’s Wi-Fi and LCS program, you can configure your CAB2 buttons to light functions you might use.
On my version, the class lights are red and used only a rear markers. They turn on and off depending on the direction of the locomotive.
Sounds like they have you covered, just tap AUX2 and the lights should be back.
Well I tried the aux 2. and got no results. any other ideas, I'm stumped
Did they ever work?
Aside from John's obvious question, I have two more:
- when you say you got no results are you talking about the headlights or the class lights?
- what is the model number of the locomotive, so we can be sure that we are talking about the right thing.
both the rear headlights and the markers. the locomotive number is1933142
Well, I suspect it'll have to be cracked open if that is the case. It kinda' sounds like this plug is not seated. One question, is the cab light working? That's on the same connector.
Cab light is fine.
I'm at a loss what exactly is wrong. If all the headlights and markers are out, that sure points to either light settings or that connector. I wonder how those signals are carried up to the shell, maybe there's some spring contacts that are screwed up?
Would a reset return all settings to default John?
Worth a shot, a "reset" for newer Legacy is just reprogramming the TMCC ID, easy enough to do.
