Hi Jean,
May I ask, how do you KNOW you're not in PA mode?
There's no indication of it anywhere I'm aware of. It's just the way the FCS flies the plane that changes. Jimi gave some good info about HOW the FCS changes way it flies the plane above.
When you start into the approach are you below 33,000 Lbs gross weight? Does the pitch trim change to 8.1 as it's supposed to? YOU don't change it, the FCS does it for you, all other parameters being correct. That's one indicator the FCS is in PA mode.
When you first start to go into approach mode, is your pitch trim zero? IE: When you first start to slow to begin your approach, do you ensure your manual pitch trim is zero NU/ND? You can see an indication of your manual pitch trim on the Checklist page of any MFD.
When you select Flaps during the mode change, do you go to Flaps FULL, or 1/2? They should be in FULL.
Once you've activated the ATC, do you change the throttle beyond 90%/20% manually? That will deactivate it, and you would then need to reactivate it with SHFT+R again. Do you ensure your throttle is between 90 and 20% before you try to activate the ATC mode?

Ok, ok, shutting up now...

Hi Pat,
Thanks for your answer.
It's my mistake, I had set the trim to 8.1 manually.

After test, everything is ok now.

I GOT, I GOT IT!!!! I FOUND THE PROBLEM!!!

Somehow, of all things, my FSUIPC got corrupted. I didn't see it in the ADD-ONS menu. I don't even recall why I was looking there. I ran it's installer again, and LO!!, no more FCS FAILTongue  Cool
Oddly, all my other planes, not that I have a ton of them but still, never had a bit of trouble, and I am certain some of them, and their gauges, use FSUIPC also.
I will go on a thorough test flight of the v18.3 tonight, and see how she flies. I am SO HAPPY!!  Grin

I can't thank you all enough for your assistance in this little situation, I really can't. My flight sim world is back on an even keel, and the seas and skies look clear, smooth, and ready to accept this incredible bird once again.

In some time, not for a couple weeks, I'll try and figure out my FSUIPC's problem. I'll report on what I dig up, just in case anyone else runs into this odd little piece of trouble. I have a sneaking hunch it has to do with an update I may have done, but I'm not going to say anything until I know for certain.

I'm going flying!!
Pat☺

Great catch PhantomTweak! Just getting back in the cockpit of my gaming FSX machine after a couple of months away and I had the same after the install. Pretty sure I moved files correctly, but I assumed along with the other updates on my machine I also needed to check FSUIPC.  Holy 80+ repaints, Batman!

Here is a different texture set for the cockpit of this marvelous aircraft for anyone who wants a more "worn" look. They are by no means perfect, and may even still be a WIP (if I can find time to keep refining them).
Full disclosure - I have borrowed some elements from the default F18 pit, as well as adding some of my own tweaks, but kept the majority of the original button and switch panels. Some of the textures are stretched simply by the model itself so may look a bit low-res.
I have also included the original texture set again in case someone installs this, doesn't like it, but then realises they've overwritten their originals.

Thanks Kea, about to work the model into my recent P3D install. It's a legacy Hornet, it should have a worn out, "been on the boat too long" look to it.
