Help with needles!

I just finished soldering all my LEDS to my board and now im trying to put the needles back on but they are going in all sorts of crazy ass directions. Does anyone know how to calibrate them so that they start up on 0 again. When i turn the key it jumps to 140. Please help me.

anothering thing that works is turn on the engine and plug the cluster into the OBDII plug in the engine bay. That recalibrates them as well.

If you have a GPS then you can fix it easy. first find a long straight road with not too many cars. The GPS will tell you how fast youre going, when you get to a cetain speed set the cruise control then manually put the needle on. Thats what I had to do. I tried turning the car too ACC then putting the needle on put it was still like 5 mph behind my actual speed. Good luck!

the ACC/0 solution works about 50% of the time... pacing another car or having a GPS receiver to help recalibrate are the only surefire options available

I stuck my needle for the rpm after i started the engine and i read off my 5" monster tach. For the speedometer, I was driving with my friends gps system and then i set the cruise control to 35mph and i stuck the needle back on.
