Default Anyone else's rev light / warning light not work right?

I bought my car about a month ago and just decided to try and fiddle around with the OEM rev / warning light inside the tach in the gauge cluster. I read in the manual about pushing the odometer button, and then adjusting the RPM with the "rev +/-" knob on the left side of the cluster. It says to hold the rev knob left or right for a couple seconds, and then you will be able to adjust it. Mine doesn't seem to be working.... are there any tricks to it? I get it to light up, and then when I hold the knob either way, no matter for how long, I get no response / adjustability and then the lights eventually turn off like I never touched it. I wanted to adjust the RPM it turns on at and turn the beep back on (it was turned off). Not sure if there are any tricks to this? Any help would be appreciated... thanks.

this is how i adjust mine, first turn the key on, then flick the stick for the shift light clockwise, you may have to do it a few times and it'll bring the needle up to 2000 rpms, then hold it clock wise or keep flicking it to the right to get it where you want, then once you have it set (it'll read the rpms on the outside air temp. display) it will beep, once it beeps turn it one way or the other to get the beeper to come on/off if you want it to beep when it's time to shift too, hope this helps

I might have just not had the key in the "on" position... that's probably my problem. I think I was trying it with the key in the ignition, but not on. I will try that, thanks. I just wanted to change it to around the 6000's for at the track because it's not always convenient to keep looking down.

Sorry Unabomber. I wasn't sure what section to put it in, but I figured other STi folk might hang around the 2.5L forum and would maybe be able to help with the problem.
