You need Active Sky Next.

First, PMDG's weather radar only works with ActiveSky Next not with ActiveSky2012, Second, a weather radar only shows precipitation. If there are cloulds, but no precipitations, it ill not show anything.

Don't forget too that the weather radar is operated automatically which means that the tilt cannot be manually controlled unless you deselect the AUTO pushbutton on the WXR panel - indication should then go from -2A to -2M. Mind you, it's useless anyway without AS Next and I do recommend it because it's fab. just flying over some CBs over the Irish Sea at the moment and the radar is picking up a beautiful carpet of red shading.
