    The black hole that is my bugeye

    So.....palms face.....Got a defi bf series boost gauge with the it from andrewtech they had one lying around with all the goods to go with it.......electrically its hooked up fine i soldered the wires at the lights up sweeps and does all that good ****........but i got no boost reading......theres a red light on all the time that blinks not sure if normal.....and the controller doesnt light up which i would assume it should but i dont know......... I got it on a hook up so returning it wont be an issue.....i just need help..... i have the boost gauge hooked into the part that says meter not boost on the controller which i thought was weird......anyway you know i was thinking about putting in the word "stop" where the dots are like an old telegram.....oh i t'd it off at the bpv where it attaches to the intercooler.......i need an adult!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not positive how the Defi BF series works to be honest with you. But all gauges work on the same basics.

    T off the bpv hose like you do, and that vacuum line should go to the sender. Then the sender should now have wires that go to the controller. Then the controller has wires that go to the Boost Gauge itself. So lets think of where the possible weak points for connections are if you're positive that they are hooked up correctly...

    Your post is borderline unintelligible, but as Mikie said, I'd check all of your sender wiring from the sensor itself, through the controller, up to the gauge display. Check all of your connections according to Defi's wiring schematic:

    The boost gauge is supposed to be plugged into one of the two "meter output" ports on the controller, so that's good. The ADVANCE controller is used for a wide variety of Defi gauges, not just boost, so "meter" is an appropriate description.

    The boost sender should be plugged into the "turbo/in-MF Press" port on the ADVANCE controller, and the controller remote should be plugged into the "switch" port.

    If all of those are correct, then I'd look at the connectors and wiring themselves. You may have a short somewhere.

    Check out the ADVANCE controller manual here:
