Parking brakes won't release

Recommended Posts

Tried doing a pushback via the FS ACTIONS menu. Nothing happened. Did the shift-P FSX one instead. Now I'm pushed but something keeps reapplying the parking brake the second I release it. The physical brake lever in the virtual cockpit is correctly releasing and re-applying, but the red FSX "PARKING BRAKES" message in the lower left won't go away whatever I press. Quite annoying as just spent 40 minutes preflighting! Any ideas?

This just happened to me. Go into the CDU and remove the wheel chocks :)


Best regards, fly safe!

This not being the first time I've used a forum, I did try that. No results came up (even now only this thread appears). Maybe an issue with the search function? 20110806-xxkxui9sa18i44ie4nih58i6u5.jpg

What CDU is being refered to?

 

Some people (incorrectly) call it the FMC. The CDU is the "monitor and keyboard" of the FMC.

 

 

 


And FS Actions menu 11RC ?

 

On the CDU (FMC), press the MENU key, FS ACTIONS> and then GROUND CONNECTIONS>.

 

All of this is shown in pictures in the tutorial and it should be pretty clear. Slow down, have a look at the pictures, and go step by step. Honestly, if you don't know these terms and how the functions work, you may want to return to Tutorial #1.

 

Full names - first and last - in the forum, please.
