Well, I have also those kind of problems, but mine are worse! I can't even turn left or right while doing pushback. I don't know why. I press 1 and 2 but nothing happens. Crying or Very sad

You have to press the 1 or 2 immediately after the shift-P, then be patient. 🙄 The acft will push straight back for a ways before it begins to turn.

I remember reading something about this on the PMDG website. I think you have to do some reassignment of keyboard keys to get it to work. Not much help, I know, but there's a TON of documentation on that site. Good luck.

Do I have to hold 1 or 2 while doing pushback? I press Shift+P and then I press 1 or 2 but with no success. I can't make the plane to turn. Maybe there's something I'm doing wrong. Well, I know that I'm doing it wrong, because the plane doesn't turn. I'd like to know why that happens.

It may be as Arkydave said that there are certain "keys" assigned to that particular aircraft being that's it's "custom" (pay-ware).
I usually do it by twisting my joystick (or '1" or "2") but that's for standard freeware aircraft.
Tale a look though your manuals or see if that pay-ware site has a forum.

I must admit, I've just tried the "1&2" method to no avail. Can anyone shed any light? Idea

As your backing up (freeware) use the "1 and 2" above the letter "Q" not on your keypad.

Hey guys! I'm a little happy, but just a little, because I could make the plane to turn while doing pushback, but it just turn right. I couldn't make the plane to turn left.
When I twist my joystick left or right, the plane doesn't turn on pushback, so I have to try it with the keyboard. I could make the plane turn right two times. That's why I'm a little happy. Now I want to make the plane turn left and I'm done. 🙂

Agus0404, if you are using a default FS2004 aircraft, then I don't understand. As far as I know, ALL default aircraft will respond to the Shift-P and 1 or 2. Many, but not all, add-on aircraft will as well. What aircraft are you trying it with? If it's an add-on, try it in something like the Cessna 172.

Neither do I. I don't understand why the plane doesn't turn when I press 1 or 2. I am using a default aircraft, 777-300 and a 747-400. With that plane, 747-400 I could make the plane to turn right.
Well, thank you very much in all the information you gave me. I'll do my best on trying to fix that problem. I can really enjoy the game with that problem. It's not a big deal. At least, it's not for me.

😕 Strange
You have to be quick when pressing the "1" or "2" after "shift"

Guys, you know what? I'm the happiest person in the whole world. Am I exaggerating? 😀 😀 After playing FS2004 last night I figured out how to make the plane to turn "left" and "right" ❗ ❗ ❗ ❗ Yeeeeeeesss!! I did it!! I'm so happy.
Thank you all of you for helping me! 👍 🍻 Now, we can celebrate. Cheers!!
Now, the question is: how did I figure out how to make the plane to turn while doing pushback? Easy!! I did not know that when you press 1 or 2 the plane instantly turn right or left. You have to be patience and wait like 3 seconds and the plane will turn automatically. That's the way I figured out how to make the plane to turn. I just waited to see any changes. But I waited 3 seconds! And the plane turned.
When I did not know what to do, I was pressing 1 and 2 and then 1 and then 1 again and 1. I was shouting "turn turn!!" And then I pressed 2 and 2, again 2. But nothing happened. That was my mistake. I wasn't waiting.
Well, I guess I have to go now. Thank you a lot, guys, for helping me. 😀

Even the pushback takes a while. At first I was just like you, why isn't it backing up.
So much for all of us to learn, by the time we get good with FS9, FSX will be out with new "toys" for us.
