Master Fuel Switch stays off when Ready for Taxi

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

when i start the Engine from the Cold and Dark condition over the "Ready for taxi" knob, the 500s Engines starts but the "Master Fuel Switches" stands in the CLOSE position (see screenshot).

  • When i put the Mouse over the Switches it says ie "Fuel Selector left (ALL)" ??? (Strange)
  • When i click on the switch once, it remains in the down-position but the Engine begins to shot down and the Mousover says "Fuel Selector left (OFF)" (Correct)
  • When i click on the switch again it goes in the OPEN position and says "Fuel Selector left (CENTER)" (Correct)

 

My Question:

How can the Engines starts while the Master Fuel Switches stands in the CLOSE position and why says the Mouseover description "Fuel Selector (ALL)"

Thanks, Ralf

Had a similar issue - solved when I realised I had some switches on my joystick assigned to fuel levers in FSUIPC. Removing these assignments got everything working...

Both FSX and FSX:SE default to "Fuel Selector left (ALL)". It is a bug that was never fixed. Clever programming can (and should!) force the Fuel Selector to OFF when the aircraft is loaded if "cold and dark," or the appropriate position if launched as "read to fly."

However, that does require clever programming... :Nerd:
