Rule 17 refers to how a locomotive engineer operates the locomotive's headlights while running the train.

Rule 17 is part of a railroad's standardized rulebook. 

Rule 17 varies from railroad to railroad. Typically, it requires dimming the headlight when the locomotive is standing in a siding waiting to meet another train, passing through passenger stations or moving within yard limits.  

Program CV49 to 104 to set Function 0 to implement Rule 17 dimming.
