Dear all,

I know this sounds like a dumb question but you don't mention pressing the period (dot) on your keyboard.
I have my joystick "trigger" set for the release.

When I press on period (.) button parking brake message disappear, but the message "brake" remain on the screen. I tried to reassign new button for the brake on the CH Sim YOKE but the problem continue. I tried also to set new button for brake on FSUIPC setup options but it didn't change anything. The brake remain on.

try taking your feet of the pedals to see if it goes away.
the pedals have got toe brakes that may be accidentally pressed. Also the calibration might be accidentally thinking that you are pressing the brake. so try to recalibrate.

Tx Spuddy, I try your solution but without any change. The brake remain on the ON position. Can the problem be with the fs9.cfg file?


I've found that sometimes the yoke/pedals config doesn't always load correctly. Forst thing I do after FS has loaded is the move every control through the complete length of its travel. i.e. each pedal all the way forward and back, press the toe-brakes all the way down. Move the yoke in a complete circle while applying full forward and back pressure, all the levers fully forward and back.

My CH pedals were also very sensitive and the slightest down pressure would activate the brakes. Use FSUIPC to set the pedals to not become active at least a 1/2" of travel is detected.
