"For California e-file purposes, CA state wages on Form W-2 must add up to total California wages reported on the CA tax return. It is not recommended to use State Wages, if different for CA efile returns. Instead, allocate CA wages to the main form by using the primary wages input."

Don't put the state wages in the state wages box a the bottom of the input screen.

Instead, you drop down the federal wages box and put one as US source and then a second entry as State wage source.  It looks like it's adding them together, but it's not it's mapping it.
