I have been searching everywhere for a solution to my problem.
I have a 2007 jeep wrangler and I pulled the gauge cluster out so I could install temporary colored stage gel to change the color lights. In doing so I removed the cluster needles. Upon installation I realized I don't know where to set the needles!
I soon made sense of this by warming the vehicle and installing the temp needle at the halfway. The fuel gauge I installed at full after filling up. Both while vehicle was running. The RPM and Speedo where set at "zero" while Jeep was off.
The problems I am experiencing are:
- Needles do not rise and fall smoothly. It is as if they are sticking.
-The needles all twitch or fluctuate when some sort of power is applied to the vehicle (ie lock/unlock with remote, or key in and turned to "on") and I don't remember this being "normal"
-Now, even after I "calibrated my Needles, I reinstalled the jeep doors and they offset from where they were... ie Fuel gauge basically dropped down by 100%.
I have reset them multiple times, I know that pressing too hard may cause sticking. But even at pressed only halfway in (not close to flush) they still stick.
I am at a loss and need some help before I go to the Stealership.
