Glowshift Boost Gauge is dim

For some reason my glowshift boost gauge is dim. I have three gauges wired together but the other two, trans temp and egt are fine. Is it possible a short in the dimmer option? I dont have any of the dimmer wires connected.

No, it was normal before. Besides any way you look at it it is dimmer than the rest.

I called Glowshift and they said to take the orange and yellow wire and attatch them to the positive terminal on the battery and take the black to the negative side. If it doesnt change to send it in for replacement and if it goes back to normal, its just a wiring issue.
