Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Twin Otter left engine does not start

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, wondering if anyone can  help me I feel like I've tried everything from reinstalling the plane to resetting controls.

 

When I boot up my plane its cold and dark, when I work through the checklist everything turns green but the left engine never actually kicks in. It just hangs even though the checklist goes green.

I get the same problem when I set the plane to "ready to fly" scenario; right engine starts perfectly the left engine goes through the motions, flicking the ignition then pushing the fuel lever forward but the engine never catches.

 

I got a few great flights out of it then this started happening and I can't figure out why.

 

FSX:SE, latest plane 1.11 I tried installing the hotfixes I saw on the forums too and they didn't help.

I investigated further with the FSUIPC logging. I think the issue is in my fseconomy client actually.

 

  517219 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66363 (0x0001033b), Param= 0 (0x00000000) TOGGLE_ALTERNATOR1

 

I get this error as soon as I activate "start flight" which shuts my engines down. I have been doing this out of habit not thinking there was an error but with the alternator switch already done, I am unable to start from cold and dark. I'll ask on the fseconomy forum.
