Hello. First of all, is the sensor secure in the bracket that it is mounted to? when you say that you move it closer to the seat, is the whole sensor moving in the bracket?

If the sensor is secure in the bracket, then you will have to perform the calibration using a capable scan tool. Please let me know if that answers your question. Thank you.
