Special lighting effect question.......

  1. Hello, im trying to figure this DCC thing out and im haveing some troubles. If im trying to activate special effect 2 useing a Digitrax DT400 super throttle, what do i do? Im trying to activate a flashing beacon light on my Athearn Genesis SD45-2. Im useing a DH123 decoder. On the light board, there is 4 pins to attach wires that read..


    Are these the special effects pins? When i got the locomotive, the srobe light wires were attached with the head light wires. I seperated them so i could make the strobe light flash. Do i need to attach the strobe light wires to one of the special effects outputs? Im really confused by all the talk of CV's and HEX talk. How do i make this work? Any help is appreciated.:cry:

    Your problem may be that the DH123 only has outputs for the front and rear headlights. The green and purple wires can not be used. You need a DH163 to use those leads.
