think there is a rice alert sensor behind the speedo... on a more serious note, you have something loose or half connected

it is because your needles have not re-seated

get a pin or a thumbtack or anything very thin, even the tip of a knife

if you look at your needles, at the base there will be a VERY thin circle between your needle and the gauge face. This small ring has to be SEATED against the gauges. not close. not kinda touching, the whole thing has to be "popped" down.

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to determine where the needle needs to be positioned when you re-seat it so that you are not always unpopping it and popping it back in until the needle rests on the pin/correct rpm with power going to the cluster???
