I tried to start in Zurich on runway 16 with a Wilco airbus A321.

After Takeoff the autopilot won't work, but in Seattle is all working.

What should I do??

Question very vague...

Did u set everything correctly in the FMC? Is it updating waypoints as you fly? Does it even recognize where you are when you initialize it? Do you have autopilot on after 1000 feet climbout?

I can tell you a lot about the Wilco Airbus as that is what I have flown many many times for USAVA, but unless I know what the exact parameters were I cannot tell you where you were missing a step.
