    I recently purchased a new Proto 2000 E7A DCC ready. I have an existing Loksound decoder (microXL). I plugged it into the NMRA pin socket and the engine runs fine. Does anyone know how to get the MARS light to function. The headlight works fine. Also I have an un attached pruple wire which comes from the under side of the dcc board. Its covered by heat shrink and I don't want to take it off to check for a label on the solder pad.

    Any help appreciated!
    Regards,
    Mike

    The purple wire is part of the sound wiring.

    Mars lights are doable via programming. Just look up LokSound's CVAR list online (if they have one).
