Control Stick Steering Push Button Light Indicators

The pitch auto, CSS and roll/yaw auto , CSS push button light indicators are located on panel F2 for the commander and on panel F4 for the pilot. Each push button light indicator is triply redundant. During entry, depressing a CSS push button light indicator will mode flight control to augmented manual in the corresponding axis, illuminate both CSS lights and extinguish both auto lights for that axis. Depressing a CSS push button light indicator to auto will return flight control in that axis to auto, extinguish both CSS lights and illuminate both auto lights. During ascent, depressing any of the four CSS push button light indicators will mode flight control to augmented manual in all axes, illuminate all four CSS push button light indicators and extinguish all four auto lights. Depressing any of the four push button light indicators to auto will mode flight control to automatic, illuminate all four auto push button light indicators and extinguish the CSS push button light indicators.
