Radar - How to turn on???

Hi, after almost 10 years away from MSFS, I just recently got sucked back in when my son purchased a new PC. Anyhow, I got the FSX steam edition and after seeing it was compatible per the forum, I purchased the B-52. I cannot for the life of me get the radar to come on. I’ve looked at the manual and through the forum and have not been able to figure out how to turn it on. Some posts on this forum no longer have their screenshots displaying, so that is not of any help. Can someone please assist? I’ve gone to the center console and turned up brightness, switched between peak and map, nothing has worked. Your insight is appreciated!

There are 3 rows of buttons on the EVS CONTROL PANEL. On the 3rd row, there is a single button with the word POWER above it, and that button is the power button for the Terrain Radar (see the attached image).

Note. The image was taken in FSX Steam Edition, and you can see that the Terrain Radar is ON, so it does work in FSX-SE.

The instructions for the EVS CONTROL PANEL can be found at the bottom of page 11 of the ‘B-52 Driver’ FLIGHT MANUAL Part II – Aircraft and Systems (csb521_manual2.pdf).
