I dont need help any more. But there is sure other guys who doesn't know how to install this. So, 1. Download the file 2. Put the downloaded file on the gauges folder (if you have windows 7 write on the "start" menu "FSX" the select gauges and put it there 3. Go back to the "FSX" folder and go to the "SimObjects" folder, select Airbus A321, then "panel" folder and select the "panel" text file. Then scroll down and there will be "[window05". Put under "Window05" text this:gauge01=PAPA320_W!Autobrakes Switch, 60,90,94,28. 4. Then save it and go back to the "Airbus_A321" folder on your "SimObjects" folder. There is text file named "aircraft". Go there and search for "brakes". Under the "[brakes]" you can see "auto_brakes". After it is maybe number 3. Change it to 4 and save. That's it! This is long but hopey easier to use than the original tutorial. Leave a comment if this helped. Thanks.

Problem solved. I just used hint from 'FATCAT' comment about changing aircraft.cfg file. Thanks.

Autobrake Fix works only for two buttons: 'Lo' and 'Med' The 'Max' button doesn't work and if I press 'Max' button then all autobrake panel stops working.

Excellent fix. I also needed to change my aircraft.cfg file for the A321 from auto_brakes = 3 to auto_brakes = 4 to get the max brake switch to work.
