key command for dme norm

i have read the manual and searched for this topic on this forum.
when using voice package everything works fine until i get to the before takeoff checklist and the "transponder and dme" check. i can turn the transponder on on the radio stack but the dme buttons don't illuminate (no action). i have assigned dme the "f" key and the dme 1 and 2 the ctrl + 4 and 6 respectively. they do not "satisfy" the check and set so i cannot move on unless i just takeoff and skip to the takeoff checklist. is there a command and/or a button i am missing?
thanks

i guess i will answer my own question as i figured out i was doing 2 things wrong. 1) i had tuned to a VORTAC instead of a VORDME and 2) you have to click the little green light/button below the nav 1 or 2 frequency display on the radio stack (DME active) - i didn't know it was clickable - i kept waiting for it to light up.

maybe this will help someone with a problem like this in the future or with a "DME not working nav problem".

thank you to myself for answering this question.  Wink
