RESET FOR LIONCHIEF AND LIONCHIEF PLUS WITH BLUETOOTH

06/28/2018

Bluetooth Versions (2017 to present): The LionChief and LionChief Plus locomotives with Bluetooth have a built it reset feature. After you have verified that the unit has an issue try to reset it. The manuals says this is how you restore sound levels, but is actually a code reset and has been found to restore motion issues as well.Earlier manuals do not mention this.

 To reset : You can use only the dedicated remote that came with the locomotive to do this. It cannot be done from the app or the Universal Remote. Have power on to the engine and the dedicated remote turned on. Hold down the three sound buttons (horn, dialog, and bell), turn the remote off and then back on again, then release the three sound buttons.
