CSL Elite V2 - Brake Calibration LC Won’t Hold
Adam Henry Member
hello everyone. So I’m about 4 months into my Csl elite v2 pedals and started noticing a 1-2% input coming from the brake without touch. I went into fanatec control and recalibrated the brake (which does show 2-3%). This will reset to the proper 0 calibration. This will work until I turn off the base (CSL Elite) then the 2-3% will come back after I start up again.
any suggestions on getting the calibration to hold?
You need to calibrate the pedals in the manual mode in the driver with slight pressure on the Brake pedal so it is calibrated with a small deadzone to prevent what you experience.
I have done that every time and it does not hold. I do run fanalab also, could that be causing it? I
No. FanaLab has nothing to do with a pedal calibration.
Maybe you should calibrate with a bit more pressure on the pedal. I always calibrate the brake pedal with 5-7% brake input to have enough deadzone so such an issue never comes up for me.
If you still get the issue with a calibrated deadzone of 10% or so I would contact the support as most likely your hardware is then damaged.
I had this issue with my old CSL elite v1. It was grounding issue. Back then i had a steel handmade rig. It could be the same issue.
Try to ground your rig to a heat radiator.
An other solution should be a couple of ferrites on the cable that goes from the wheelbase to the pedals. One ferrite a couple of inches from the wheelbase plug, and an other a couple of inches from the pedals plug.
