Hi Ray, welcome to the forums mate!A screen shot of your overhead panel might be a bit easier to interpret. Can you post one after engine start and we'll look at it for you.Cheers

If I knew how to take a screenshot I would. Thats why I did it like that.

- Set up the image you want to capture in FS- Press 'Alt' + 'Print Screen'- Go into an image managing program like Photoshop or even MS Paint- Press 'Ctrl' + 'v'- Go to the file menu and save the picture as a JPG file- You can then use it to attach here.A forum search on taking screenshots will assist further.Look forward to helping you out! :-)

After engine start, did the DRIVE DISC lights extinguish?Did you try cycling the BTB's and GCB's (OFF-ON-OFF)?Cheers.Q>
