Default Defi BF gauge calibration

Does anyone know how to adjust the needle zero point on the BF series gauges? I recently bought a new pod and after I disconnected and reconnected the gauge the zero point changed. Here's a picture of the gauge after sweep and the car off.



If anyone has Defi's direct email could you pm it to me?

From what I'm to understand the bf gauges are supposed to recalibrate themselves each startup.

That's what I thought but if that was true all I'd have to do is turn it off and back on again

^ Can't help remembering that infamous tech call center quote, "Did you try turning it off and back on again?"

Staying on topic though, I would imagine they would recalibrate themselves when they sweep. I'd run it for a few days and see what happens.

I've turned them on and off about 30 times already and it's still the same. I didn't have this problem when I installed it two years ago. Something has changed when I unplugged it and plugged it back in.

Update to this problem.... I've rewired the gauge controller to an entirely new harness and still have this issue. I've found instructions on the problem on the forums but they aren't working either. I also recorded a video of me trying these instructions.

Here is the instructions from Defi

Thank you for inquiry.
If you are using Defi-Link electric gauge (not a mechanical),
you can let your control unit to learn 0 pressure point.

So, please try following way.

If you are using 1st generation control unit

(1)Turn your ignition switch to "ON" (but do not start engine)
(2)Select your Turbo gauge to configure warning value (LED on Turbo
gauge
blinking fast)
(3)Press REC and PEAK switch same time more than 2 seconds.
(4)Finished learning Zero point.

If you are using 2nd generation (=Control Unit II) control unit

(1)Turn your ignition switch to "ON" (but do not start engine)
(2)Select your Turbo gauge to configure warning value (LED on Turbo
gauge
blinking fast)
(3)Press REC and DOWN switch.
(4)Finished learning Zero point.


Thank you and best regards.
xxxxxxx xxxxxx
Defi"



At first I thought it was a little odd that this procedure is not outlined anywhere in the user manual, but then I found out why: BECOUSE IT DOES NOT WORK! . Curious to hear what he has to say to my reply on this
I have an odd feeling I'm getting the "run around" here like I did when I inquired about the gauge initially reading 0.8-1.0 psi too high.
