Pantu Posted May 1, 2006 Report Share Posted May 1, 2006 Hi Pete, I´m using pmsystems (latest build 85) but my fuel levers don´t actually work as supposed. The 2 HW switches (eng.1 and2) are connected via FSBus. I defined 2 "virtual buttons" in order to have them recognized in FSUIPC´s button page. Then defined for the switches "on" position: mixt. eng1 (2) rich and for the "off" position: mixt. eng1(2) lean. So far so good. My problem: the switches work nicely(recognized in FSUIPC), but the engines start even the fuel valve switches are in "cutoff" position. As soon as I turn the starter switch on the overhead to "Gnd" the light " Start valve open" on the Upper Eicas in PM GC comes on. The engine spools up and ignites. If i flip the Fuel lever switches to "Run" position the engine continues to run. (OK) Flipping it to "cutoff" the engine shuts down (OK). I thought the start valve is driven by the fuel valve switch. How come that the light "start valve open" comes on as soon as the igniter switch is set to GND. Do I need to set values for "rich" and "Lean" in FSUIPC? Any hint highly appreciated.
