sounds like someone had all the needles off for some reason and didnt do a very good job of putting them back on where they go.

If you want to re-set the needles yourself you'll have to pull the panel and take the plastic shield off of it, and drive around with it open and the needles off....

If you press and hold the trip-reset button BEFORE putting the key in the car, and continue holding it while you start the car, you can toggle through all of the dash information digitaly such as speed, revs, etc. to put the needles in the right place. The hard one is going to be speed, because you'll have to set the cruise on a straight road and put the needle on WHILE DRIVING. (unless of course you do this on a dyno lol)
