Caution Light

Recommended Posts

Morning gents,

 

I have an illuminated caution light on the panel. I cant reset it by pressing it and I cannot seem to locate what is incorrect. I followed the checklists and checked all the systems and it appears to be normal. Is there a menu or screen I am missing that will show me what I may have missed? Thanks.

It's when you load up from the cold & dark state, it's being fixed. Alternatively you could just shut everything down and save that panel state, which will fix the issue (and give you cold and dark). As a second alternative you could avoid using the cold and dark state, it isn't very realistic to use it anyway, try using the LONG state.  :smile:

Ok. My 1st time loading it from cold and dark and that explained it. I was just worried that maybe I missed a step or something and was going to have a massive failure during my flight. Thanks for the quick answers.

Long states are rare, especially in heavies.

Its all good. I just wanted to more be sure that I didnt miss a step during startup that caused the caution light to be illuminated. If I have to use a different panel state that is no big deal. I generally dont ever start with cold and dark on a regular basis, but when I get a new aircraft I find it to be very helpful to start that way several times to get used to the systems and procedures.

Closer to C&D than short though.
