Livewire TS SCT EGT?

Okay I went from the TSX to the TS and after install and setting things up the sct EGT probe was working great. I then noticed after a few days that the number were acting weird... They would jump around and then went to numbers like this 3345.48. I had a spare sct EGT probe (new in box) so I swapped it out same results. I them unplugged the OBDII wait a few mins and plugged it back in. Well that fixed the numbers looking normal again but they still jump around from say 345 to 400 and all in between. My TSX didn't do that the numbers stayed close together. So I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this. It doesn't matter if you are at idle or accelerating the numbers jump all over.
Thanks

I don't have the TS, Hopefully Portcity_gt chimes in.

My analog gauge was jumpy, turned out the pass side neg cable from battery to front of engine block was loose.

All of the analog gauges on my ts are jumpy always have been.

Mine has also done the high number thing a couple times I unplugged it like you did to fix it.

I'll have to look into that ground! That could be causing another problem I have.
