    That's normal operation. The AP in FSX makes heavy use of the elevator trim, so that you effectively are fighting the AP if you try to adjust the trim and it WILL fight back.

    The ILS for 01L is 108.9, 19L is 110.3, 19R is 108.5, and 01R is 111.95 but 01R is a LOC, that is, localizer only approach. You might check what freq(s) you were using.
