ED250 occasionally doesn't want to accelerate on manual controls


Recommended Posts

I wanted to have the wonderful experience of taking control on EIP 1337 from Warszawa Wschodnia in the direction of Kraków. However at Warszawa Centralna the accelerator decided to not work. I did a full reset on the cab to no avail. After giving controls to the bot it suddenly decides to accelerate. AFter leaving and rejoining I could even proceed on my own...

 

...well that is until I had to apply the break pressure at some point. Guess what happened then. Exactly! It didn't want to accelerate again! I have controlled the Pendolino the exact same way before and it worked without a problem. Now however it just doesn't want to work out of reasons that are beyond my comprehension. Did I do something wrong or is there a weird bug going on?

Also the labeling on the state of the break may be confusing. It is very sloppy when showing the current state e.g. you can put it to "Fill" position and it won't say "Fill" but something else.

It frustrates me on how I got the perfect opportunity to take the best train nummer there is and explore the section from Psary to Tunel only to figure out it doesn't want to work anymore the way it used to work flawlessly before.

Going by in game chat this is an issue that is often affecting people. 

The only thing I can say to be sure of, and I think this is a change that has been made recently to the Pendo, but once you have made any brake application, you now need to return the power lever all the way to its clicked back off position before reapplying power once your brake application has fully released - denoted in the warning panel with an amber lit symbol.  Only after the warning light has gone out can you reapply power.  But you must have brought the power lever all the way back, first.

You've probably done all this, but it's worth a double check.

I just tried it out on a Pendolino and it turns out - you are right! I already tried to put the lever all the way down and up again but apparently it takes a bit more force to really have it on the lowest level. You only know whether you have put it down properly if it is actually really down as there is no indication on how much it is down. You can't feel it yourself after all.

There is actually a way to do that. I mean if you gonna hold num -, the power lever will go to 0, and then you have to press once again num - and it's gonna indicate the absolute 0 with a clicky sound.

Pleased to hear you figured it out.

As noted, you need to hold num- until you reach zero throttle.  THEN press num- again to switch it to off.  I took it for granted that everyone knows about that final click, but it's probably what is catching people out.

As I mentioned, I've seen people in chat saying they can't get their Pendo to take power again and then come up with all kinds of reasons to why that might be.  I try to help in chat but with little success. However, it hadn't occurred to me that I need to mention that extra position on the lever, I'd just say make sure it's all the way back. There's only so much you can say when you're trying to drive you're own train. But it lead me to wonder if there is actually a bug, but in all my driving of the Pendo I've never encountered such a case.

 You just gotta be aware of the final click! 😅

And this procedure wasn't necessary until a recent update, so that's also contributing to catching people out.  I'm guessing it's prototypical, eliminating the risk of surging forward should a driver forget they still had throttle applied upon releasing the brakes.
