Press "Ctrl+E" plus 1, if there are more than one engine you have to press 1, 2, 3, 4 fast while holding Ctrl+E.

How many engines are you working with?

Try pushing E 1 and 2 all at the same time.

Once you get into good payware planes where you have to use Overheads, you don't have to keep selecting engines 1 by 2, you just use the buttons to start it without having to use the buttons on the keyboard.

Try pushing E 1 and 2 at the same time though, depending on how many engines you are working with.

Is this on every aircraft you've tried, is it the default ones or the add-ons.
