Led blinks when train put on track


I am assuming you are using the Lionel CW80 power source. If so, the blinking light might indicate a partial short or a problem with the motor. The reason I believe that is that the CW80 has an internal fuse, which will blow for near shorts/shorts. A stalled motor i.e stuck drive gear, can cause excessive power drain although not enough to blow the internal fuse and also cause the engine not to move. Also, If the engine has the neoprene belt on one of the drive wheels it might have come off and is jamming the running gear or wheel. I believe the Polar Express only has one neoprene belt.

Motor runs fine bu sometimes wont move


It could be the belt is worn too thin and the clutch won't engage. Try a new belt and see if that solves the problem. Hope this helps.

Power seat motor


Fron first principles, the reverse movement of the motor is caused by reversing power polarity to the motor. If he motor runs in one direction and not the other then it isthe switch. It is not conecting power to the reverse contact. Check.replace switch.

The 4x4 wheel buttin wont light up, and the 4x4 wont engage


There is a small electric motor on the transfer case that shifts in and out of 4WD. Before you take it off, try resetting the switch. There is a relay in the driver side rear in front of the rear washer fluid reservoir. Hold the white button down for about 10 sec. I am pretty sure it flashes. If that does not work, pull off the electric motor and test it with 12v power. Most of the time they jump past where they are supposed to be. If you reverse the polarity, the motor will turn in reverse.
