      You have 3 problems

      1.The P5 is wired differently than the P8

      With a Phoenix P 5 - you should have 2 green wires going from the Phoenix power in (1 & 2) to the AirWire DCC outputs (terminal numbers will vary depending on which AirWire board you are using).  There is no orange wire required.

      2. AirWire drop-ins are designed for Phoenix P8 boards and the plug connectors may be wrong for a P5.  Unfortunately, the AirWire instructions don't give a pin-out for their "phoenix" socket so we don't know which pins are the DCC terminals

      3. If moving from a steam engine (with a chuff signal) to a diesel (with no chuff) you have to change the Phoenix to respond to "speed from voltage"

      You should probably phone Phoenix sound and ask for their advice

      Gary, there are 3 wires going from the Airwire to the Phoenix,  2 green and an orange.  Is it the 2 green (which I believe is power) that you suggest I reverse?
