I've noticed, especially with prop aircraft, that they will have electric failures that are not correctable in any way. You can try de-selecting the failure option in the menu, but it will not do anything. Any idea how to fix this?

Sometimes the battery/avionics will shut off when engines are turned off. You will have to manually turn them on. I hope this fixes your problem.

well if this is when you are in the air it means you did not turn your generators on. If it is on the ground with the engines off than just turn the engines on and everything will come back.

It's usually in the air; how do you turn the generators on if the engines are already on and/or just recently shut off?

well with the engines off electrical supply is coming only from the battery and it will run out. But your engines should not be off in the air. You turn your generators on by finding the generator switch and turning it on after you turned on the engines. I might be able to tell you where they are if you tell me what airplane you fly the most or which airplane is giving you the problem. On the ground when parked unless you need the battery on turn it off so you can save power.

I think it goes by the 30 min rule, then it shuts off if no generators are online.
