    Auto pilot landing

    While making an ils approach, as soon as I turned the APP and second autopilot on the 737 turned to go off somewhere else and I had no control. The LNAV was off so I presume it could not follow the legs on the CDU. I tried the heading select but the APP then went off. Do you have any ideas what could be happening?

    Well, check if you tuned the NAV2 on ILS frequency before engaging the second AP in APP mode --as well , hope you setting the rwy course on the MCP and the Nav1 tuned correctly on ILS

    Bad navdata may alsow couse problems , so worth to try some diff airport ,just in case

    Regards
