As I'm at work this will have to be a quick initial answer but I'll come back with more detail later if my comments below don't help. Some things for you to look at and check:In the F-PLAN page of the MCDU did you have the arrival airport and runway set up?- did you activate the approach in the MCDU perf page (below 7800 AGL)?- did you press the ILS button on the glareshield during the descent checks? This brings up the ILS data in the bottom left of the PFD.- As part of my approach checks I always look at the RAD NAV page and make sure that at LSK1L itsays ILS and that the correct ILS freq is correct.- Pressing the LOC when you are already established on the ILS is too late. You should be doing it before capturing the ILS. The APPR should then be pressed when the glideslope indicator on the right hand side of the PFD shows one dot above the centre.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

Hi All, I am having a problem with LOC, as when I go to the Nav/RAD page I cnnot see any of the ILS, it is blank, and when I go to NAVDATA page to get info on ILS, it says NOT in DATA base, but when I start the flight, I have the dep and ARR, and I can choose all the ILS and RNWY.So what is the problem, that I cannot figure out.Please help.thanksWalouigi
