You probably can find a workaround, and find a dataref that is similar, or states the current airplane state.

What is the real meaning of this blue LED on the C208?

hi there. tx for the quick response.

sim use to be p3dv4. but i can not build my Cessna c208b caravan home cockpit cause i can not find all the data i need to run all my hardware panels. so i came back to xplane11 cause i also have the c208b in xplane11.

the blue light is the ignition on annunciator. i am trying my hand at air manager and arduino for the gauges. but im stuck with the leds. i know how to add them. but still looking for a nice tut on how and what to do with the xplane data refs. looks like there is just a few for refs for the annunciators.

Hi,

The c208b in XP11. Is it a freeware plane or Payware? If Payware who is the developer (Air-Frame house).

Some developers have custom datarefs and commands. So we might be able to assist if we know this information.

Is it this one?

Hi,

We can help. I have the C206 not the C208 from Carenado and the datarefs are custom. They most definitely are costume on your version.

Do you have "dataref tool " installed?

If so pop onto the discord and we can search for the correct dataref using screen share.
