HELP! I messed up my speedometer and RPM Needles
Ok here it goes, I was trying to change my gauges right? Well i didn't know that you were not supposed to take off the needles until the guy that sold me the gauges told me so... Well I did, as most of you have done stupid things to you car i've done it too [Razz] So now, my RPM and speedometer needles don't work, but when i step on it really hard the RPM moves just like crazy going up and when i take off my foot it goes down fast. The speedometer doesnt move at all!!! Why should i do????
And no, i don't want to go to the dealership because they are just a bunch of hungry people trying to stop you from doing mods to your car.

Any ideas or suggestions are well welcomed guys.
Thank you!!!!!!!

well its possible that you may have pushed the needle on too much or too little. or maybe the new gauges are touching the base of the needle. check those things out first... because buying a whole new gauge cluster will cost a very pretty penny

Make sure that needles dont touch the faces. And you need calibration (procedures here )

Already did the calibration thing. I turned off my car without the needles, then i put the needles back at 0 postion and turned on the car...NOTHING! Is that site saying that i need to put the needles when my car is moving????
