Possible work-around for landing/taxi lights stop functioning

Recommended Posts

Gents - Due to a minor error in the schematics at the PMDG factory there is a possibility that the battery will discharge even if EDGs (Engine Driven Generators) are online. Making the battery discharge and consequently various systems will cease to operate as the voltage drops. This has been confirmed on the -800 VC and VCCAB, and the -900 VC and VCCAB.For those with registered FSUIPC there is an easy work-around in checking the Extend Battery checkbox on the Technical tab and setting the value to 0 (indefinite battery life). There is however a work-around for those without a registered FSUIPC. In the Aircraft|Realism settings... menu set the General slider to easy. This will prevent the battery from draining out from within FS.This will probably work-around the Radio panel ceasing to respond issue as well. But is unconfirmed at the moment.In the mean time PMDG Development is rewiring the electricals.PMDG Test Flight Department

TimYou will see the voltage drop on both the stand-by bus and the battery bus. Due to the wiring you will not be able to see negative amps on the battery load though. ;-)Hope it helps,
