Citation X Cabin pressurization alert

Recommended Posts

Hi all-

 

I keep getting a cabin pressurization alert on my ESDG Citation X.

 

Has anyone figured out how to remedy this? Yes, I been to their forum but it was no help.

 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Have you actually tried the "workaround" that's required when using an external weather program:

 

 

Fortunately, the workaround is easy: just set the altimeter to 29.92 until the cabin starts to pressurize (a few seconds), and then set it back to the local altimeter setting.

I thought this may have been fxed on your end as this was a long time agoand I'm assuming that I have the latest version.

 

I'll try it and let you know.

 

Bill, I start with engines running. Should I save my default flight with 29.92?

It would probably be a good idea. I am also assuming that you are using the Automatic setting and have both bleed air valves open.

Thanks for your help, Bill. I appreciate it.

 

I'll try this later on this afternoon and follow up.

We answered, you didn't like it so running to Avsim will not change the answer. We don't do support over there, just here.

When you get a minute Ron, either grab a dictionary or Google the word TACT.

 

If you can't manage that, try to get close to Bill and maybe some of his will rub off.

 

Have a nice day,

Mark

No luck Bill.

 

Set default BP to 29.92 and saved as my default flight, restarted. Loaded flight at KLAS, waited a few minutes while  loading fpl KLAS > OAL > KSFO, reset BP tp current 29.77 from ASN.

 

~Ten minutes into flight at FL240, warning goes off.

 

Everything seems as it should be...

Not sure what the deal is here.

You may try some yourself. Why make a mountain out of a molehill when plain answers should suffice? B)

Mark, I'm going to download and install the CX later today so I can investigate some other issues that have arisen. I'll be sure to check out the pressurization system while I'm at it.

Thanks. 

 

This is my favorite aircraft and I really want to get this fixed.

 

Cheers,

There was known issue with a bug in a weather addon. The bug would give false readings and throw off default as well as our CX. All this from memory if I recall correctly.

The simple fix for me would be to comment out the gage and it's commensurate warning although I don't know if this is tied to another function in the aircraft.

 

Now, where's that gage located :>)

It isn't "a gauge" at all, it is integrated into a system gauge.

So disabling this won't work?

 

I'm afraid it will work very well... along with the rest of the systems (in context).

Because Bill mentioned it was integrated into a system gauge. So it can't be done by commenting out as suggested. You comment out the system gauge you turn down the whole plane if not the whole cx model.

Yup, thinking you can manipulate the requirements is just leading you further into misunderstanding of all that's involved. B)

Update! Capt. Walden just posted this in our forums so have a look:

 

["CaptWalden"] "Refer to your checklists...

Barometric pressure should be set regardless during the initialization.
Secondly, if you are running ASN and have not disabled weather by default on FSInn, you now have two weather sources conflicting for wx info in FSX.

Disable weather by default if you are flying online and using FSInn. Let ASN handle the weather.

I've been flying this aircraft from the get go and have never had this issue."

Thanks for this information, but I have already removed all ESDG products from my system.
