Steven Posted April 15, 2012 Report Share Posted April 15, 2012 This morning my 4 year old CTLS experienced some sort of electrical failure as I tried to start the engine. I flipped the main switch on and all seemed normal (right side panel came on) until I turned the ignition key to start the engine. There was a click and then everything went dead. The engine never cranked. After that everything stayed completely dead even as I flipped the main switch repeatedly off and on and also flipped all the fuses off and on. The battery is fully charged as shown by a green light on the battery minder. Any ideas what this could be ? Perhaps the main switch just blew when the electrical current surged to run the starter motor ? Or could a wire have failed ? If it's simple I could try fixing it myself, although I'd prefer not to. Could it be something complicated that only an experienced CTLS mechanic could fix ? I notice that there is very little detail in the electrical diagrams in the maintenance manual. The plane was fine when I flew it a days ago, so it was only idle for a short period of time before this electrical glitch occurred. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
