Try CTRL SHIFT F4 to maximise mixture control and them M++ to engage
starter. This bypasses the panel controls in case there is a problem with
them.

Dicounted C208 but not looked at PC12.

However....can't start the b....r noW1
The engine turns over but doesn't start. Autostart has same outcome.
Fuel OK.
