Hey Everyone
Ive been lurking here for a while and this is my first post. This past Saturday I had just put in my new Premier Cd player and since I had the battery unhooked, I decided that it would be a good time to clear my gauge needles. I knew from reading the forums that I should make note of where the needles were when the truck was off, so I did that. When I put them back on, the Tach gauge is about 1000 RPM off and the speedo doesnt even register until I'm going about 20-30 MPH. Is there any way that I can fix these things myself without having the stealership fix it for me!
Thanks

I had a similiar problem when I changed my guages a couple of years ago. For the tach you could find out what your engine idles at and put the tach needle back on aiming at the correct RPM when it's idleing. You could also drive beside someone with an accurate speedometer and have a passenger that is riding with you put the speedometer needle on pointing to the correct speed. For the fuel guage, fill up the tank and just put the fuel needle on showing full. As for the oil pressure, battery, and water temp. try to put those back where you remember them to be under normal conditions. OR you could just forget about that cluster and upgrade to new completely different cluster(escalade/denali) with a tranny temp guage and 120mph speedo.

I did the same thing.

I got my speedo set back with my GPS.
I did the RPM's, Battery, and Oil like Chad Said.
My Gas is still off My LowFuel light comes on when the needle still reads a Quarter tank :crazy:

Thanks Guys. Ive been eyeing a set of those denali gauges, but I would really like to drop in a set of those white faced SS gauges, too bad they wont work on my 99. 'Preciate the input.
