I do need help with ILS
Aug 12th, 2017 at 5:18pm
Print Post  
Since a couple of day's I have the following ILS problem:
At appr, select the rwy in use and the FMC set the ILS freq into
the radio/nav page correctly. (push the LSK twice for manual, no help)
But, at the PFD/ND I have no ILS indication at all, means GS and LOC amber boxes only, no Freq ind at the lower left side inside the PFD.
I'm sure, I made some mistake/forgot something, but I cannot find out what the problem is
Any help are very appreciate.
Peter

Pitter,

I have seen the same happen at some airports.

When I select an approach at a major airport such as KJFK the ILS works normally.

Try that and see if you get an ILS approach.

Try reinstalling the 777 (Repair), to see if that fixes the problem.

Note. The Navigraph AIRAC is based on the real world, and so on some airports, the ILS used by the AIRAC, are not the same used by FSX (it might be the same for P3D) for the runway you've selected to use. I saw that you can get regular cycle updates for the navigation data for FSX(P3D?), but you have to pay for it, just like you do for the Navigraph AIRAC updates.

Hi Peter.

Sorry to hear you were in hospital. I hope you are well now.

This is a long shot at fixing the problem, but it might be worth a try. Download this SimConnect.msi, and install it. With a bit of luck, it might fix the problem for you. <fingers crossed>

Hi Mark,
thank you, I´m back to normal.
The simconnect not only solved my ILS prob, but also my
problem to connect the remote CDU to the plane.

Thank you so much,
Peter
