CH Products Flight Sim Yoke - some buttons stopped working - broken wire?

Recommended Posts

For many years, I have been using my trusty CH Products Flight Sim Yoke.


Recently however, these 4 buttons (see picture) would only work when I turned the aileron axis to the right. Later they stopped working completely (Left / right fire, aileron trim buttons).




Since the wires were attached quite tightly via cable binder, I suspect a broken common ground wire, which affects these 4 buttons.




Did anyone experience a similar issue and would have a clue about which wire is most likely damaged / broken?


Everything else still works like a charm (with regular maintenance).


Your kind help is appreciated. Thank you very much.

Get a multi-tester to diagnose if you have a broken wire.


Probe the backside of the connector that plugs into the circuit board and make a list of what color wire is for each button.


Start with the buttons that you know work. Then you could narrow down what wire may be broken.

Hate to resurrect this, but I have the EXACT same issue with a yoke I just purchased, except those buttons only work with the yoke turned left.


Did you ever find a resolution?


I'm perfectly comfortable with some disassembly and repairs, but would prefer not to go in blind.
