Autopilot Engages and then disconnects

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Has anyone else been experiencing where the autopilot engages for about 5 to 10 seconds and then disconnects?  Within the FD parameters for LNAV and VNAV.

Usually means you didn't hand the aircraft over in trim, and/or your hardware is sending spikes. Calibrate it, or go into the OPTIONS menu and look for the options to disable control inputs with the AP on.
