Autopilot will not engage.

Recommended Posts

HiI recently reinstalled FS9 and the PMDG737 SU2, I have tried a couple of flights tonight and the Autopilot will not engage.I take off as usual and once I get to approx 1000' AGL I press the AP button.All that happens is the button flashes the AP off alarm sounds and the AP FIRST annunciator lights.Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong.I followed the Tim Metzinger tutorial to check and the same thing happens, I did not have this problem with SU1 or SU2 before I reinstalled.ThanksTerryThanksTerry
