No sound from an Alco RSD-15

Tom in Texas

I can't seem to get any sound out of the locomotive

Here are my observatinos

The engine runs on both DC and DCC.
I can change the address from 2 to 4 digits using OPS mode programming
I can turn the lights on and off with F0 when running in DCC mode.

I think I have pushed F6 enough times to wear out the button

I am able to reset the locomotive's decoder to address 03 with the magnetic
wand on my DCC track

I do not seem to be able to reset the locomotive on a DC track with the
magnetic wand

The locomotive doesn't seem to pick up power from the front truck
