Did you change any CVs? A reset might do the trick.   Joe

 From Soundtraxx web site: Fault Light
When the decoder encounters a fault, the red fault light and all installed lighting will flash an
allotted number of times to report an error code. The number of times the light flashes
corresponds to a specific error. Error 10: Over-Voltage Fault
Voltage is monitored during normal operation to automatically deactivate sound and motor
processes when voltage exceeds the decoderís voltage limit. Settings resume when the voltage
is reduced to within limits and will vary between decoder models.  You may have a voltage problem some how. What system are you using?   Joe

I turn the volume on my decoders to about half to 2/3. The enclosure is  available with out speaker as well so you could use a better speaker. A sugar cube speaker might work in it's place. Soundtraxx has 2:  810154 and 810155. I may try one of these instead of the
 Bachmann enclosure.    Joe

No. The GP30 has a low short hood and split frame. The GP30 is a longer bodyas well.     Joe

You can add sound but will have to modify the frame to make room for a speaker. Here's a vidoe for a GP38-2 with a similar frame style.   Joe

If you want sound, you can use a Tsunami 2 or econami, Lok Sound, or WOW. Bachamann sells the sound value decoder as well. You'll need a speaker and enclosure. I used the enclosure that comes on the sound value loco.   Joe
enclosure:  http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_68_573&products_id=7121
sound value decoder: http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_68_573&products_id=10483

 The sound value is a stripped down SoundTRaxx decoder. If you're on a budget, it's a good way to get into sound.

Did you instal the decoder correctly? The orange wire is pij 1. There should be a mark or 1 on the PCB to show where pin 1 goes.  Joe

Do you have aloop of track available? If so, run the loco in forward at 1/3 speed for 15 or so minutes, then 2/3 speed then full speeed. Do the same in reverse. This may help.   Joe

Sound value F7A from Model Trainstuff or The Favorite Spot. I dealt with both companies with no problems.  Joe

 The tank lifts  straight up. If it's a sound unit, be carefull as the wire to the speaker is short. The tank fits over the weight on the bottom of the frame, so lift up to clear it.  Joe
