Engine Start Switches in FS2004

Recommended Posts

After fighting FS2004/FS9 for over a month I've finally gotten it to work (required a complete reinstall and lots of other PC stuff). Now, I can't get the start switches to turn left (to start the engines); i.e., I can't start the darned thing! The switches turn to the right but not to the left. x( I'm using the same procedures that I did in FS2002 and I have the service update 1.1.Help please!
