Ballast in 2008 X-2?

Now that we finally got the boat in the water, just wondering about the X-2s ballast system.

I have a 2008 X-2, I originally understood that the '08s have three hard tanks built into them, the rear lockers port and stern, and then the KGB which is somewhere in the middle correct? However, I noticed that upon using the boat yesterday, the KGB tank is absent from the VDIG screen? Where should I see the KGB tank on the screen? Also for some reason, when it switches to the ballast screen, I see a little red wrench square up at the very front of the boat it looks like in between the pickle front bow corners?

I can't speak to the "red wrench", however my 2008 developed a problem this season where my front ballast has disappeared from my VDIG display as well but the tank itself is filling and emptying as it should...I just can't see the water levels. Had it into the shop and they replaced the sensor or sending unit from that tank....but that did not correct the problem.

In short, it's probably a sensor somewhere that is faulty and needing replaced.

Hard to explain in words, I will try to take a pic. But there should be the Port tank on the left of the boat image, and then on the right the KGB and the Starboard should show. The KGB on top... Hope that makes sense
