CV help
Posted by Reformed Grownup on Thursday, April 3, 2008 9:15 AM

I finally got my BB SW7 w/ Digitrax DZ123 back together and on the track. I test ran it and it runs fine (for what it is). The only problem I have is that I must have mixed up the headlight leads when I was soldering.Dunce [D)] The lights now operate opposite of the direction of travel (ie. rear light on when moving forward, forward light on when moving backward)Banged Head [banghead]

I know there must be a way to re-map the functions to correct this can somebody set me straight? What CVs do I change, and what would be the correct values?

As always, thank you for your collective brain power!Bow [bow]

I read it (great tutorial BTW) and actually downloaded the software, but I haven't had the opportunity to sit down and install it and try it out. My "play" time is currently severely restricted - my wife is pursuing her nursing degree and working full-time, so I spend most of my "free time" carting the kids to and from their activities and playing Mr. Mom (gasp!)Chef [C=:-)]. This is why i truly appreciate your response - it allows me to move forward without taking another side trip.

Your willingness to share your expertise is an asset to this forum. ( I promise I will "hit the books" once time allowsSmile [:)])

 

Thanks againBow [bow]
