1. Before you mount the pod back into the dash.

2. Install it w/o the front cover on, plug in the harnesses and turn the key to the "ON" position.

3. The needles with do an cycle in which they vibrate and find their resting position. Turn key to "OFF" position.

4. Unplug the harnesses w/o disturbing the needles

5. Adjust the needles slightly past their usual resting spot when the key is off.

6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 until the needles sit in the right spot.

7. Reassemble the gauge pod without disturbing the needles and reinstall back into the dash.

put your needles back on and rotate it COUNTER-CLOCKWISE (you'll feel resistance) until you get to the point where you want it to rest. plug it in and the meters should reset itself
