KFC225 autopilot not turning on

Hi
My aircraft has factory installed autopilot.( KFC225 )
I have landed for 5 minute. After when i started the engine and tried to turn on the autopilot, but the computer has not turned on. The switch lighted green, but i didn’t see anything on the screen of the autopilot computer. I tried it once more, then work. This problem repeated once more.
After flying i tried to switch on 10 times. It worked.
What do you think?
Where can i repair that?

If “the switch lighted green” is the autopilot master switch, it sounds like that switch has a problem.

But if this cannot be repeated it will be very difficult to troubleshoot. It could be something in the autopilot computer.

I would replace the master switch. The P/N should be in the STC IM for that installation, or the OEM P/N may be evident from an inspection of the switch. Can you post a photo of the switch?

Today i used the aircraft, it worked.
I hope this is not a computer problem.
Where can i repair the computer?

When it comes to repairs of older avionics Avionik Straubing https://www.avionik.de seems to be one of the most qualified shops. They have an expert called Martin Scheifl working just on autopilots.
