I'm really enjoying my new to me Tecnam P2008 with the 912iS, but still getting use to all that it offers.  One problem that I have from time to time is with the Lane Lights.  To start it, I hold up the Start Power Switch until they go out (green), then hit the starter switch.  It starts easily, but the Lane Lights come on (red) and remain lit after it starts and I have to shut down. My POH says to set throttle forward about 3/4 of an inch.  I've tried it with a little more throttle and also with it completely back against the stop and it doesn't seem to make a difference.  Usually the lights go green as they should on the second try, but a few times it has taken more than 2 tries.  Once they go green, I've had no trouble. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a sign of trouble? Thanks for your help in advance.

    If the voltage drops low during cranking, it is not unusual for the Lanes to fault out.
    There is NO need to shut down, just cycle the Lane power one at a time to clear the Faults.

    Lane A OFF then ON - - - Lane B OFF then ON.
    You do not even have to wait for the First Lane to finish resetting before cycling the other.

    Thanks, Bill, that makes me feel a little better.  I'll give that a try.

    Bill is correct.  I have the same issue from time to time with my P2008 912iS.  

    What year is yours?  How many hours?

    Are you on Tecnam Talk yet?  We have a few members with the P2008 912iS.  It’s a good resource.

    Mine is a 2012 with about 350 hrs. I owned a 1960 172 for 40 some years with very few updates during that time.  All the intricacies of the Rotax engine and all the new fangled avionics (and updates of each) is quite taxing on my old brain, to say the least. But I love flying it and I will persevere! I'm on the Tecnam Owners group on FB. Where can I find Tecnam Talk?
