You do not have a Series 2, it is a Series one. As for the the boost gauge, it is supposed to sit in the negative and float around depending on how hard the throttle is pushed, at WOT, your needle should sweep over into the yellow on the gauge. As for the problem, I am betting on a bad BCA or BCS, but I think the BCS will trip a SES. Let the gearheads explain it.
