Enabling W or R to automation lights up mute and solo

Hello all As the title states if I click to write or read automation to this particular channel the mute and solo buttons light up and the channel is muted. As soon as I un-click the read or write automation the lights turn off and the channel plays. :confused: This problem never happened before and is only happening on this channel. I do not have any automation, channel or mute locks on. If it matters this channel was a Kontakt 5 VSTI channel in a previous project that was exported to a wav file and imported into this project as a wav file in a stereo audio channel. I already tried making another stereo channel and importing the wav file into that channel and I get the same problem. Any help would be a huge help. Thanks in advance.
