try pushing the button on the right of your dash your most likely in tripomiter. Holding the button will reset the tripometer.


Thanks Deathjam4 but its the tachometer. Somehow it slipped and with engine off it reads 5500 rpms. Not sure if or how i can reset back to zero? Hoping for simple fix other than new cluster gauge.

Hey did you fixed that? I have the same problem now


could try a hard reboot .. basicly unplug the battery and wait 15 minutes be sure to have a radio code. other wise maybe try removing the fuse for the gauges for a few minutes. might work might not.
