When I manually fly the aircraft to the glideslope or even on the glideslope like during a usual manual landing (which I always do) the autopilot does not work at all when I choose "APR-hold". The autopilot doesn't do anything (sometimes one single aileron input) and the aircraft will leave the glideslope pretty soon.
How can you perform an autopilot ILS landing? It used to work in FS98 so I know what I'm talking about but it doesn't work in FS2002. Does it have to do with the angle you hit the glideslope? Why doesn't the AP simply hold the glideslope if I'm already on the right way?

That's what I've always done. Just wanna see how the AP works in this case.
Landing with the AP isn't flight sim, is it? VFR in 15 kts crosswind, OK. Holding the ILS by yourself with help of the panel, OK.

engage not only the APR hold but also the autopilot itself. Just pressing APR hold with the AP disabled will not turn on the AP.
Also make sure you have an ILS selected and active and the Nav/GPS switch set to Nav.
Approach the localiser within 30 degrees and from slightly below.

The APR button is fiesty on FS2002. Before turning it on, make sure that you're exaclty on the glideslope, and then turn it on. Don't have the APR get you on the ILS, b/c it won't work (which might be what's happening in your case)./

I have only been playing with FS2002 for a couple days, but I have been successfull in getting it intercept the glideslope with no problem. The only difference between the APR mode in 2002 and the APR mode in earlier versions is that it will not intercept the glideslope if you are above it. If you are below the glide slope it will intercept without a problem. MS said they did it that way on purspose to make it more realistic.
