Defi BF Boost Gauge Install

Recommended Posts

Miserably failed at re installing my boost gauge today. 


All was running perfectly fine when I last uninstalled it from the old car but like an idiot I didn't pay attention to the wiring. 


I am assuming the wires that come off the gauge controller are as followed. 


Red - 12v Constant

Black - Ground

White - Illumination 

Orange - Acc


However the gauge powers on and sweeps but then the back lights turn off again. Yet I can still control the gauge. Does anyone know if the black face gauges require something a bit different in terms of wiring to get a constant light? Or am I missing something extremely obvious.

It always pays to check the simple stuff... 


I had the gauge plugged into metre output 1 on the gauge controller and turns out it needed to be in metre output 2. 


All working as it should now.
