ESU Loksound V5 shut off ditch light flash
Author: NYCStL776

I am hopeless at reading ESU’s CV tables so hopefully someone will know, what CV shuts off the alternating flash for the ditch lights? Thanks in advance

Try setting these CVs,

CV31 = 16
CV32 = 8
CV309 = 0

do you have a loksound programer, would  be very simple under, function outputs, aux1 and aux2 uncheck alternate phase and uncheck grade crossing. i think cv 31, cv32 are sound cvs.

You can download the ESU programming software whether you have the ESU Programmer or not and use the menu selection to show a list of CV's and data values for a particular function. Then use your favorite method of loading the CV's.

Having been through that it's pain in the caboose, much easier to use something like JMRI Decoder Pro and a USB to DCC bus converter with an old Laptop. Or the formal ESU programmer at twice the price but very useful for loading sound files. Hope that helps.

If using ESU decoders, software is very easy with using their decoder device. It also comes in handy to test decoders before installing them in a locomotive. Has saved me more headaches than I care to mention and I don’t have to know any CV values.

Make sure you're choosing "ditch light type 1"
I think "type 2" is always flashing.
