Exclamation All Defi Bf Boost Owners...

I have a quick question. I just installed my boost gauge, i ran the wires from the clock harness, and everything seems to work fine. Well when i turn my key to ignition, and my clusted does the opening ceremony, so does my boost gauge, now when i turn my car on, my boost gauge does the opening ceremony again???? is this normal or do i have some wires that i might have swapped. when i turn my key off everything turns off.
Thanx

Z

It's normal. The ignition voltage is lowered or removed to the clock when you turn the key to start and crank the starter.

Could you take B+ off of the red stereo wire? I don't think it dips with cranking (test it first!)

All accessory drops when you crank the car and return after.ignition remains active during crank.

not normal. I had mine professionally installed (he didn't use the clock wiring for just this reason) and there is no double startup sequence.
