[RESOLVED] No CDI Deflection Mindstar HSI/GNS430

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to install the Mindstar GNS430 and HSI into Carenado PA34 Seneca II.   Everything works fine, except the HSI has a NAV flag and CDI is not getting a signal in either VLOC or GPS mode.  Autopilot steers ok in both modes.  No signal from 430 to the HSI.   The C172 panel works fine in all modes.

Heading Card rotates, OBS rotates, Heading Bug Rotates, but needle is always centered with a NAV flag.     (FSX Steam, Windows 10.)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Sounds like the gauge order is the issue... post the panel.cfg

I believe it is a gauge order issue... I have modified your panel.cfg to change the order of the gauges.  Try this:

No change,  sorry.   Nav flag and no movement.   Is it because simconnect=none? 

On the original Seneca the HSI would show deflection for the VLOC but not for the GPS with GNS 500.   With mindstar there is no deflection for VLOC or GPS. 

I tried turning off radios in the aircraft.cfg but that didn't help.

SimConnect is not needed.  

Put the aircraft in the air with everything on (engine, electrical) at 3000' altitude and tune a nearby VOR.  Ensure the GNS shows VLOC for the CDI mode in the bottom left of it's display.  If it shows GPS, press the CDI button once.  If the NAV flag remains, something is broken with your system as at that point the HSI is reading the signal strength of the tuned VOR from the sim's own variable, nothing more.

Unfortunately, that's what I have been doing.   Airborne with a local VOR tuned.   I can receive the VOR on Nav 2, works fine.   I can hear the ID on Nav 1, but the HSI does not respond in VLOC mode.  I can turn on the autopilot and it will turn towards the VOR.   In GPS mode I select Direct to a waypoint.  The autopilot will turn to the waypoint, but the HSI is still dead.  Nav flag at all times, in VLOC and GPS mode using the Mindstar HSI.    If I use the original Seneca HSI, the VOR will work ok and nav flag goes out, but nothing in GPS mode.  I don't recall if I had a Nav flag with the original HSI and Mindstar GPS in GPS mode.   Either way the needle does not respond in gps mode.

Affirmative on avionics master switch.   It is on.

I just tried the Mindstar 430 with the default Seneca HSI.   It works fine in VLOC mode, no flags, then when I switch to GPS, the HSI continues to operate in VOR mode.  No flags.  Does not seem to be connected to the 430.

If the HSI is not responding when the GNS indicates VLOC mode... it is an issue with your sim.  In VLOC mode the HSI uses the default sim variables to control the needles and the flags.  If the avionics switch is ON and the avionics bus has a voltage > 17 volts... then it should function in VLOC mode without issue.

There is nothing else.  This has nothing to do with the 430 itself so you can stop trying to make it work... it already is.  What is your default flight when the sim first loads?

Default flight is Seneca airborne over PHX.  

By the way, I just installed mindstar 430 & HSI into the fsx c208 and everything works fine.  Even get a VNAV for an LPV approach! 

Must be something to do with carenado, and how things are setup.  There is no clearly defined Nav1 Nav2 in the panel.cfg.

This has to do with power.  You need to restore the default flight with the ultralight over Friday Harbor.  It initializes variables correctly.  You should never start the sim without that being the first thing it loads up with.  You don't have to go into the flight itself... just make sure it's the default flight so that the sim opens up it's files, initializes everything correctly.

WOW!  SUCCESS!

You had mentioned previously a minimum 17 Volts and it dawned on me this is a 14V airplane!  I went to the Seneca aircraft.cfg and upped the voltage to 28V and viola!  HSI has power! 

I don't think it mentions anywhere in the documents about it being a 24 v HSI??

(resetting the default Friday harbor did nothing.  I even deleted my fsx.cfg and generated a new one.  Still nothing till I upped the voltage.)

Thanks for the help Ed.   I can finally fly my Seneca with a GNS430 after 3 days of hair pulling.   I guess it was worth it just to have an answer.

Thanks again.
