When I turn it on the cockpit lights bright for a moment then goes out. I was wondering if anyone here might have a fix for this slight problem as it is a bother when flying at night.
I have installed FSX Gold with Acceleration.
Any help would be appreciated
This could be a battery problem. When you first open any aircraft depending upon what you use for start up flight that is how the aircraft will open. Myself I have my start up flight load what is called cold&dark which means no power or no lights and engines off. So if your start up flight loads with power or the battery on it will drain pretty quickly which would make the light go out. Usually if you re select the aircraft it will come back on again.
Usually one will turn on the ground power to do there pre flight with that is the only cure I know of.
Jet aircraft have an APU that can provide power and Jetways have ground power as well
if this aircraft does not have an APU than the only other way you can keep the lights on would be to start an engine.
