ahh yes, the cutting of power with the key controls a myriad of relays solenoids and other electrical components that it would blow your mind to know how many miles of wire are in the modern automobile . sometimes when the power is cut throughout the entire system thee is a brief electrical feedback as all the relays and switches disconnect themselves from the system . this could easily move your instrument cluster gauges since they only operate on about 3 volts instead of twelve . I don't think there's anything to worry about unless your battery starts not starting the car .
