    IDG 1 disconnecting after starting Eng 1

    Hello,

    I am looking for some input. I know i am mostly missing something here. When i go to start engines, i start engine 2 first. It starts no problem. When i go to start engine 1 it starts but the idg 1 disconnects and gen 1 does not power up. It remains off and only gen 2 remains on. Can anyone help me out. I tried restarting idg1 then restarting gen 1 but it does not work. What am i missing?

    Thanks in advance for your replies and help!

    Do you have any switch mapped to the IDG?

    Re: IDG 1 disconnecting after starting Eng 1

    I had a switch assigned. I only assigned it after i noticed idg 1 was disconnecting after eng 1 start up. Once i saw it made no difference i have since removed the switch assignment.
