Power Cab: Functions Not Working

This issue may appear after using the Programming Track Mode.

While operating a locomotive some functions do not work. If this occurs, unplug or turn the Power Cab off and wait a few seconds. Once it has completely shut down, power it up and allow it to reboot/restart. Everything should work normally after this.
