Autopilot 1 Problem

Good evening fellow captains! 

On my recent flights I encountered yet another new problem.... 

I cannot, for the love of god, get AP1to work anymore and follow commands, if I engage AP1 at around 4000 feet, the Concorde goes straight pitch down into the ground, it doesnt respond to any AP commands (HDG TRK, PITCH HOLD etc) 

AP2 works fine, funny enough.. 

I followed the checklists by the line as I always (99% ;) ) do..

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue? Any help would be much much appreciated!

When you say it pitches down do you mean that even pulling on the stick has no effect, or do you mean the aircraft naturally pitches down because AP1 isn't controlling it?

The autopilot does control it, it just pitches the aircraft straight down into a dive 

Naturally when disabling AP and taking back manual control I can take it out of the dive..
