As you are aware I have recently responded to your other question regarding the Cessna 207.
What version of X-Plane are you using? If you have updated to XP11.40b3 then you need to take into account the message found at https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/160879-thinking-of-downloading-a-x-plane-beta-version/ The same may also apply to your Cessna problem.
If you haven't updated then I would also suggest leaving Beta versions to experienced X-Plane flight simmers. I personally leave Beta versions alone and only upgrade when an official release is made.
When loading an aircraft in X-Plane from the standard listing a serial number is not required. If the serial number relates to the aircraft then that suggests to me that the piper aircraft is a 3rd party purchase. You may also need to consider the information previously supplied in the link found at https://questions.x-plane.com/26359/bought-cessna-xplane-store-load-game-pilot-blocks-cockpit-view
However, if the serial number relates to the X-Plane software then it tells me you have a digital download. After starting X-Plane and when prompted apply the password key. You need to ensure you are connected to the internet at all times when running X-Plane as the software performs a silent background test to ensure you have a legal copy. If the software cannot detect a password it will shut you down. Other flight simmers have the same problem
