The red button above the radio on the pedestal sounds like the on/off button for the tail rotor pitch limiter which is not the autopilot yaw channel.

The yaw channel has 100% authority. The other channels only have 20% authority.

When the yaw channel is engaged (green light is illuminated for the yaw channel on the autopilot control desk) and you remove your feet from the pedals, it should begin to move the pedals as required to maintain the heading at which the feet were removed from the pedals.
