Hello.
I wanted to add a cabin light to two of my locos: BR245 and BR94.5. They both have an msd3 decoders. Am I right? Now, according to a manual they have 4 functions available. Question is, where are they? There is no marks on a boards. BR94.5 37168.jpgBR245 29479.jpg

Hi

The AUX 1 is on pin 15 Cable color Br/Red
The AUX 2 is on pin 17 Cable color Br/Green
The AUX 3 is on pin 19 Cable color Br/Yellow
The AUX 4 is on pin 8 Cable color Br/White

You have to follow them on the board to see where they go and if is anything connected to them.

Some times the outputs have no any connection expect the mtc connector

Be very careful with the decoder. The 4 functions apply to the retrofit decoders, but not always for the original decoders

The best is to check the decoder with a decoder tester to see how many functions are available.

Usually all the mSD3 have 4

From the photos I can see that the motherboards are extremely simple, so the operation will be easy

You need of course a polymeter.

Regards

Costas

In the first picture I can see that the AUX 1 is connected to something (may be smoke generator - Br/Red wire???)
The AUX 2 has a solder pad just in front, Aux 3 going to the second solder pad in the series of 5 and AUX 4 has no any connection
Must be so but I can't be 100% sure just from this photo

in the second I can see that AUX 4 is going to a soldering pad but as is the picture I cant see what happen with the others

May be some better photos from 90 degree angle will help

ESU (NEM) is different but the pins do the same job.

You use a polymeter for what purpose, please? I know a polymeter as a small weather station only.
CS 3 is a controller system from Märklin - not a central station.

Bad translation from Greek to English.....

Multimeter is a mixture of Latin -multi- and greek -meter-
