Default Aeroforce scan guage

Ok so we tried installing an aeroforce scan guage in my car. However we are having a problem. We plug it in and we wired the red power wire to the car. When the car starts tthe guage will turn on for a little while. Then shut off for a few seconds and turn on again. This seems to happen all the time. Any ideas? And anyone know what the green and white wires are for?

Mine only came with one wire, white.
The other two would be for the newer updated version with an analog in signal so you can record O2 wide band etc.
Did the unit come with a manual?
Here'* an online version http://www.aeroforcetech.com/files/I..._version_4.pdf

You should email support and let them know.

I think there'* a jumper on the back, you need to check that. If it'* one way it get'* power from teh OBDII cable. The other way it gets power from the extra wire.

at first we tried to use ust the obd2 connector and that caused the same problem. The we hard wired it and we did remove the jumper and it still caused the same problem. I guess I will have to email there support to see what I am doing wrong.
