Hey Guys,

When in reverse, the lights on the back of the locomotive don't light. I looked in the manual and cannot seem to find how to fix this problem. Is there some CAB-2 keypad option to turn these lights off/on? Or, possibly a loose connection to the lights on the back?

First try a reset/restore on page 23 of the manual.   Here is a link:

This is the reverse light board with LEDs. 

The part is no longer available from Lionel.

If you remove the wire harness from the connector you can measure the wire for voltage.  It should read 5 VDC between wires when shifted to reverse.  That will help you locate if the problem is in the radio/receiver board or the lighting board.
