Default Issues with defi gauges

As above bought my WR1 with the gauges in boost, oil temp and oil pressure, the oil pressure works fine the other two gauges light up but have a intermittent red light flash this suggest sensor issue from what I read, I changed over the boost sensor and same issue trying to fix one at a time so start with boost its has a t-piece pipe off the inlet direct to a sensor which feeds through the bulk head and into the back of the gauges does this sound correct? Also all the gauges are daisy chained together (sure that's the fraze) any help much appreciated.

Check that the little plugs on the leads to the gauges, the daisy chain, and those going into the control box, are pressed fully home. check that they have not been strained resulting in damage to the plugs, which are tiny and susceptible to damage.

Spares are available.

Have you got your warning set right as the light will come on if not set right

Ie when my battery goes flat my boost defaults to around 1bar I think , so unless I reset it to high enough that it's over my current boost setting it will come on as a warning

The boost control sensor wire should go to the controller as you say in your first post it goes to the back of the gauges ? All sensors connect to the controller , then only one wire goes to the gauges then they are chained together

Had a similar issue with my oil temp, turned out to be the wire between the gauge and the controller so ordered a replacement from Japan. If you can find someone with a set you could test it with their wire to confirm the wire is goosed.
