The Lenz Gold decoders are brilliant devices that can really transform the characteristics of an engine. They won't turn a junker into a Kato, but they certainly help the motor perform to its fullest potential. A list of all the impressive features is available on the Lenz website.
Among the many features available is a number of quite sophisticated lighting effects. One thing that's not immediately obvious is how to configure the ditch lights to be switchable on and off, with an additional function to have them flashing e.g. when approaching a grade crossing.
My standard function mapping is as follows:
F4: front headlight F7: ditchlights on/off F6: rear headlight F2: ditchlights flash F5: headlight dim F3: switch speed
This can be achieved using these standard CV configurations on a Lenz 10433:
CV41: 12 ditchlights on/off with F7 CV64: 2 ditchlights flash with F2 CV57: 16 headlights dim with F5 CV38: 1 front headlight on/off with F1 CV40: 2 rear headlight on/off with F6 CV55: 32 dim level for front headlight CV56: 32 dim level for rear headlight CV62: 21 ditchlights effect: flashing
Using Decoder Pro, don't forget to turn off the F0(F) and F0(R) mapping on the 'function map' tab and a possibly conflicting assignment for F4 and/or F6 on the 'Lenz function map' tab.
