Exclamation Need HELP with my ISSPRO EV2 gauges!

Ok so I Just bought a 3-gauge ISSPRO kit from Thoroughbred Diesel, the EV2's, and I installed them today. Now I installed a Trans Oil Temp, an EGT, and a Boost. The trans temp is acting up. It has the stepper motor in it and everytime it performs the stepping action it lands on a different temp, most recent being 120-130 and back to 120. This is with the truck off and the key in the on position. I cycle the key and it goes to 120 then I turn it off and back to the on position and now 130. I cycle the key again and now its back to 120. I am confused. Another instance was when I turn the truck to the on position and engine off and the stepper motor steps up and never comes back down. I turn off the truck and back on and it just keeps increasing untill it reaches the pin past 280. I dont understand what could be wrong but I have tried their troubleshooting on their website and no luck. Hope someone can help me.

On a seperate note the EGT gauge is not going bellow 100 and i am just wondering if that is normal? it performs fine to the best of my knowlege when truck is running but when i turn off my truck it stays at the last read value. I find that odd. Any help here would be great.

As for the Boost Gauge I will finish the underhood portion tomorrow since I ran out of daylight today.

I will try contacting ISSPRO in the am as well as Thoroughbred Diesel since that is where I purchased the gauges from... Im leaving for Nashville, TN June 6th and was hoping to have all my bugs and kinks taken care of before then so I can Install the DP-Tuner I have also.

**UPDATE**
Now I installed my boost gauge and it does not read less than 4psi even at idle... I thought there would be vacuum at that point since im not even touching the throttle and adding any boost. Has anyone had this kind of trouble before with their ISSPRO gauges.

I really need some input.

As for my Trans Temp, ISSPRO is sending me a new gauge. They said that the needle on the gauge has friction due to the fact that they forgot to insert some type of bushing or washer thing inbetween the face and the needle. So that is resolved.

As for the EGT gauge, ISSPRO informed me that that is working properly so Im glad one was right and the trans is being resolved.

but Please any input on the Boost gauge would be helpful...

guess a for the night

Just an update - I've been in contact with landyacht27, it looks like the boost gauge also had the issue with the sticking pointer, probably built by the same person on the same day they botched the trans temp gauge! I have notified the production line to make sure everyone is trained correctly in that area. We have replacements on their way to him.
