Don't go changing the needle around just yet. How did it get that way?

Just saying not to be so quick to correct it until you figure out why it changed in the first place. It sounded like you though the locksmith did something. It could be something that can be changed back without removing/repositioning the needles.

Sometimes an electronic speedometer, like yours, will swing all the way over when the battery is disconnected. Check your fuses. Perhaps the locksmith accidentally shorted something while opening your door & blew a fuse. HTH. -Jim
