Exclamation Quick Help!!!

I have installed a new glow gauge backing inside the insrument cluster...and i had to remove the dials it self...well after i was done butting the new backing on and putting the dials back on...everything went to crap. None of my gauges read correctly. I tried removing the negative line for a few minutes and turning the key to on to let the instruments reset, well they acted all stupid and they all read something different. I need some way how to reset them or put them back in place so i can drive again! I appreciate it if anyone could help me out!

Re: Quick Help!!!

Sorry about that...got ahead of myself.

01 Ford Mustang
V6 3.8L
Automatic

I far as i got with this is that im not sure if the Tempature gauge is reading correctly, fuel, oil and temp, and well just about all of them. Is there a way i can get all them to accuratly read again or should i get them recalibrated from a professional (i really dont want to spend the money)?

Re: Quick Help!!!

I am not familiar with this model but it sound to me that somewhere along the way you have disconnected the common earth for all the gauges.
