Hello. Can someone help me to connect my boost gauge correct ? I try different variations but none of my connection scheme work.

Here is cables i have.

In video signal cable is different...

Here is scheme included in boost gauge package:

I also connect signal wire but when i test boost gauge zero position don't work for me.

In short i'm stuck at wiring. I tried connecting it as close as I saw in amstudio's video but it only shows max or min boost, nothing in between. In zero position needle shaking.

this is the same problem I had before.
for signals, how come 2 pins in the middle, red signal, black ground / -
use the new Arduino, I'm sure the old Arduino is short
and now works well in Assetto Corsa.
sorry if my english is bad
thank you

It needs 12V to run, needle shaking suggests lack of power. Is the Arduino delivering 5V or 12V?

Hello. I use the same wire scheme but boost gauge needle still shaking in zero position. Other 3 pin connect in boost sensor like this.

What you mean use new Arduino ? I have Arduino Nano V3.0 CH340.

I use AC/DC 12V 2A adapter.

hope this helps,
try using the new Arduino

what game did you try?
only assetto corsa, use a turbo car
is it with another Arduino board?
Yes, i use AC and i change Arduino and get the same result. I think problem is cheap boost gauge: Arduino After Market Boost Gauge

The signal is based on PWM from 490hz to 1000hz, some boost gauge does not incorporate signal smoothing which will lead to shaky needle when idling at 0bars. This seems common to very cheap gauges.
