So ive been installing some audio equipment in my car and have been disconnecting the battery a couple times and now my car does something a little wierd. Now my car does a guage wipe when i start it. Sometimes it doesnt too although i think i figured out that it only does it if you dont drive it for a while. Did it always do this? Am i crazy and just didnt notice. and if this is normal then when does it do a wipe and why

I assume you mean that the needles sweep completely over, and the trip odometer resets. This is normal and happens when you disconnect the battery. If it's doing it without you disconnecting the battery, then something is wrong. Maybe a short.

There is nothing "in" the gauges except a circuit board.
