Instrument Panel ?

I was changing the light bulbs in the panel and didnt realize that I didnt have to take the whole thing apart to change them. So my problem is I took all the gauge needles off and I was wondering how to put them back on right. I tried putting them back on and they all read wrong when I start the truck.

Any help or suggestions? Thanks

turn the truck on with the panel hooked up but without the needles. Let everything get to where it should normal be then put em back on... That would be my guess

I did this same thing the passed week. I always reset my odometer at every fill up to check my MPG and incase my fuel gauge F's up, I know that around 280-300 miles fuel up. but as for your gauges, I would fill my truck, bring it home wait for the next cold morning, turn the key on, put in your oil at zero cause engine isn't running, fuel gauge at full, temp at zero, as far as volts, use a multimeter when your trucks on and put it where its close? I had a older 5.0 Stang a while back where I did a gauge color thing, when you put the gauge needles back in dont push them in too hard, or they wont be able to move.

What year is the truck? On my 2000, the oil, fuel, volts, and temp all fall to zero when the key is turned off. So maybe try zeroing the pointers with the key off.
