I have been trying to get the back up light to not be on when running forward. Model Railroader in their review of this engine said it could be done. After reading a lot of sources, I tried and failed. I am using a NCE power cab with my Pacific. I thought I had it, but instead now the rear light flashes all the time. I think one problem I have is not all sources use the same terminology for the elements involved. So, I am willing to give up if I can just reset to the factory settings, but how do I do that?
On another subject, how do I remove an engine I no longer have from the power cab. The only thing I can find is how to remove an engine from a consist.

Does the headlight flash as well?  That could be an error code.

Do you have the USRA 'Light' Pacific or the K4 Pacific?

Light Pacific and only the rear light is flashing, both in forward and reverse.

Okay, set CV 8 to 8.  That should reset the loco to factory settings.  (This will also reset its address to 3)

Looking at Soundtraxx' CV list, directional lighting is configured by setting CVs 33 to 1 and 34 to 2. (The default light function output for both directions is 3, which is both lights)

I also use a Power Cab, but removing an engine hasn't been a problem.  I just hit Select Loco and enter a new address.
