A short video with NASSP and the AGC emulator showing the Apollo 14 procedure that was used to prevent an abort caused by their faulty abort button. It also shows what happens when you don't use the procedure and follow the nominal timeline for Powered Descent Initiation. Spoiler: the computer will start the abort maneuver at the instance of ignition.
For Apollo 15 and later the computer had a simple crew procedure for ignoring both of the abort buttons. This is just one of the fun things you can do with the flown AGC software!
