Default Tnetics Boost Controller...

I have the tnetics boost contoller to take place of the stock solenoid. I wanted to change the boost but the knob wouldnt move. I didnt force it but it didnt click. It loke like there was a small stem sticking up blocking the knob from turning.. What gives?? Tia Psycho 6.....

There are little recesses drilled into the knob. That rod is supposed to be there. Its sping loaded and sits in thoes recesses. It should turn with a very small amount of force. If it doesnt, somethings machined wrong, just push the rod down with your finger or flat blade and turn the knob.

WHEN i first got the controller it clicked no problem.. It will not turn either way. Tries pushing pulling and tried force.. i give up..

Ps-took a screw driver to the little stub and it was able to turn. Just never was like that. Thanks boys.... Psycho 6.....

Are you all set, did you free it up.. if so, back the knob all the way out carefully, there is nothing more than a ball and spring in there. Don't lose em, take the knob off, sounds like the threads may has gotten corroded?
