F1 2016 brake and gas at 50 percent without pressing (Fanatec CSL Elite @PC)

F1 2016 with Fanatec CSL Elite @PC ;
After a change from Thrustmaster to Fanatec I was coming back to F1 2016, but It'd to recognize that it's not playable anymore because brake and gas pedals are shown (after creating a custom set) with 50 percent already pressed. So where is the calibration and why reads F1 2016 the pedals not at zero when not pressed?

I've tried also older CM games like Dirt 3 where the wheelbase and the pedals are flawless usable.

    Anybody? 
    Any way for a proper in game calibration ?

    I have the same pedals and don't have this problem.

    Select your wheel in the menu, not your pedals, then bind your pedals to the wheels profile and they'll be calibrated properly.

    F1 games basically have no calibration inside of them, its stupid xD

    I've selected the wheel (the pedals are connected to the wheel).
    In custom setup I press the accelerator and brake pedals to register it. In advanced wheel settings I can see that the value of accelerator and brake is not 0 as it should, both are at 49 and if I press the pedals the value changes up to 100 but goes not under 49.

    Have you calibrated them in the Fanatec software? You can enable manual calibration

    Sure. In Fanatec software on the function test tab all is ok. I tried with automatic and manual calibration the pedals work fine.
    Just checked F1 2013 and created a custom setting, there is all as it should be ... so I had to go for a fast race over 25 laps :-)

    It seems that F1 2016 is the only one from my Codemaster games with this problem and no possibility to calibrate (or auto calibrate) the Fanatec CSL Elite LC pedals. This game is the current F1 game and Codemasters does not iron out the controller problems. There are more that have this problem that 49 is the minimum value from brake or accelerator.

    BTW: I tested F1 2013, Dirt 3, Dirt Rally, Dirt 4 and all are running from the controller / pedals point of view very well.

    Are you on the latest firmware? I know this can sometimes be the reason for problems or solve them.
    If you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver.

    Yes, Firmware 297 and Driver 289 beta.
    The problem persists only with F1 2016 so I think there is something buggy with the calibration part of the game. It's a shame, that Codemasters does not iron out the problems in their current games.

    Just saying, my CSL elites are plugged in via USB and work perfect, maybe try that to test?

    Thanks for this advice, I changed the cabeling. I had used the connection to the wheel and changed to the USB connection.
    So now the pedals are working as they should do but the next problem is that there is now no FFB.

    I think I give up with F1 2016 ... I don't know what Codemasters is doing behind the scenes but the wheel support is in this game is not up to date even the old F1 2013 does not have any problems. The reworked controller support in F1 2016 seems broken, they should look in their older games and transfer their controller code to the newer games or should patch their games to a more robust controller calibration and setup tool.

    Do you have a CSL Elite PS4 Base? If so, use the mode button to switch to V2 Mode, after starting the Game. 
    I had the same 50% Problem, but its working fine now. (CSL LC Pedals plugged into Base)

    Thanks for the idea, but unfortunately this compatibility mode is only supported on PS4  and I'm on a PC with F1 2016.

    So I have the option to go without FFB or no calibration for brake and acceleration pedals.

    I have exactly the same problem as you have.. And I'm afraid for 2017 the same problem will arise so I emailed them about this problem. Maybe a good one if you do this also so they see multiple people having problems with this. I have also found nothing to fix this problem and tried everything I found on the internet. :(

    I've got a question about this cabeling you did. Did you need to buy an extra cable or something or was it possible with the cables delivered? I wasn't able to fix the pedals eather and this would at least help me out in some extend ;)

    The CSL Elite LC pedals that I'm using have both cables included. So I disconnected the pedals from the wheel base and connected the pedals with the USB cable to the PC. BTW: Do not connect the pedals to the wheel base and the PC at the same time!

    It seems that Codemasters has already forgotten F1 2016 because no single answer or patch even if there are a lot of technical problems with this game as we can see in tbis forum. So I will at least avoid the next Codemasters games.

    This forum is ignored every year. They don't care about past games they are in the business of selling us new ones. It's the same every year. I can't think of another game where the Technical Assistance forum or similar is ignored so much by the community mods
