How do you test that the control wheel switch is working while doing ground testing, apart from checking the continuity of the wires.
Thanks

If you push the switch and it works for enable/disable (connect/disconnect), then you're good to go - as it's the same switch!

Cheers,

Engage the autopilot on the ground. It will start ticking in one direction looking for a reaction. As it does push the CWS button and you should feel the resistance go away.
