Hello, we replaced the instrument cluster light bulbs on my 1997 Ford F150. As part of the operation we removed the dials on the instrument panel (didn't need to do that!) now all of the dials read incorrectly. Is there a way to electronically reset the instrument cluster back to zero or do we need to remove and dials and reposition them again? Thanks in advance for your expert help!

My son was adding a small LED light (snake eyes) accent lighting under the dash of his 2008 Hyundai elantra. He used an "add a fuse" piece which he attached to the 10amp instrument cluster fuse on the fuse panel. While tightening the nut (with a wrench) to his ground source under the dash, he arced (short circuited) from ground to the wire he had added to the instrument cluster fuse. We cannot find any fuses blown under the dash or out under the hood. He started the car to make sure the instru

I have a 97 SAAB 900 NG, with the instrument panel intermittently going out. It is not the “Black Panel”, all power is out including speedometer.
