did i screw them up or what?
Tjboston. Make sure you don't push the needles down too far. Also in the test mode when you hold down the odometer needle sweep the gauges and make sure they move all the way. Like miragesmack make sure the tank is full and run the car a while and put the temp needle in the middle. How do the gauges look?
