Ok here'* the deal with the position. It'* quite ingenious. First off my camera sucks at close up detail pics.
In this picture, the two non-adjusting points circled in red are like the adjusters but smaller and just move in and out.
The non-adjusting points have two small contacts on them that ride up and down on bare contacts on the PCB board. The contacts make a difference resistance depending on how far in or out they are. This is read by the the module.
So in my problem was probably dirty contacts between the board and the non-adjusters.
