    Landing and Taxi Lights

    Hey guys,

    Question?

    I turn on the landing lights and they show up for about 3 seconds then turn themselves off all of a sudden.

    I turn on the taxi lights and they show up for about the same length of time and then turn off again.

    They are physically not turning off, but they disappear from the forward view as if they were shutting themselves off.

    Any ideas?

    Trev

    I think your A/C's are grounded!

    FS9 or FSX ?
    A internal A/C panel is disabled ? It is the typical effect if you use hardware and switch the Offset against a A/C panel that is still active and switches then back (1-3 sec).

    I don't know that PM has anything to do with it. It has happened to me and I'm not using PM.

    Not PM, any FS panel that is still active with its own logic. That means there are sometimes panels like PMDG does, when you then set e.g. Ldg lights the panel sets it back because its own switch has not been used.
    So those panel lines or switch describtions has to be removed from the panel.cfg.

    LOL

    It is Fs9, and I have the Panel Directory completely removed from the aircraft directory. I thought the same as you Thomas, Hardware turns it on, and the Panel turns it off. But I have no panel.cfg file either.

    Any other ideas?
