Hallo All,

I have often trouble with starting the engines. APU ON, APU Bleed ON, Packs OFF, ENGINE MODE IGN. On the ECAM FUEL page I often see the Fuel Valve opening and when then close again right away. I then have to wait a minute or so and then try again. In the mean time I cycle the ENGINE MODE Switch.

I am running P3D 2.5 with only OPUS FXS adnd FSUIPC running on the Flight Sim computer.

Any ideas?

Best regards,

did you activate the fuel pumps on the overhead panel?
If i do so, i get "CENTR TANK FEEDG" in the ECAM-Display.
Best regards,

Hallo Marco,

Yes, there are no OFF lights on the overhead.

Some people have had issues because of the state of the aircraft when the start flight is loaded.
Try to load again the aircraft just before starting for the first time to see if it happens again. If it does not happen, close the software, load the aircraft, then safe that as default flight.

Hallo JL,

Thanks, that did the job.

I just made a flight with B39.0 and all is working well.

Thanks a regards,
