I don't think you can do it everytime. Go through the procedure in the How-To's here and you'll know what exactly to do. Won't happen every start up though

The gauge sweep is part of the cluster testing routine. With some electronic engineering background, you may be able to get it working on your car, but you do not want to run the entire cluster test. It will always reset the trip meter to 0.

That's true but it would be cool if it could be done in a simple way which doesn't require tins of electrical work
