        We are working on a flap position indicator on a Cessna 182. The Owner has been reporting erratic flap indication and has asked us to repair it.

            This aircraft has one flap position indicator located on the right wing, the flap gauge is on the co-pilot panel. This is a typical avionics troubleshooting adventure.We removed the original position indicator and measured the resistance using a multimeter. The unit was not providing any resistance. At this point all we could do was try to find a repaired or replacement unit.

         We located an exchange and decided have one sent to us. When the rebuilt unit arrived we determined that is was not the correct model number and decided to stick with our first plan and have the original unit repaired. Now we are sending both units back and in a few days we will receive the original back and repaired.
