Lidar Lite V3 on I2C not working on plane 3.8.3

I have a lidar lite v3 hooked up according to the wiki and Lambdrive for I2C minus the liadr wires being changed on the v3 sensors, I had it working perfectly on a previous firmware (cannot remember which one it was) but now it seems to not work when it is plugged in via the I2C splitter. but if I plug it directly into the board it does work, or at least i get a sonarrange in the status tab. Has anyone else been able to get their lidar lite v3 working off I2C splitter?
