Issues with starting engines

Hello, I was flying in the expert server today. I was spawned in at KSFO in a United a320. When I tried to start the engines, they never started. I clicked the engine button but it never worked. Could somebody help me please?


Do you have a screenshot of your engine settings? Was your APU on before starting?


Hey @WindyCityProdz!

I suspect @skye is right by suggesting you make sure your APU is on. To turn on your APU go on the right to systems>electrical>APU (APU start will turn APU on)>Engines (and then you can turn your engines on). Keep in mind you can always start everything by pressing auto start in systems>misc.

Below I have linked the user guide page for pushback and engine start which should give you a more in-depth idea of what actions to perform. If you have any more issues I suggest you read the user guide to solve the problem. If you cannot solve the issue with the user guide, you should create a topic for help!

Happy flying!

The apu was on

did you select APU start to turn it on or did you just select APU on? Also, was the main battery on?

I just figured out why. I set APU to on instead of start. Thanks for the help
