    the other day I noticed my speedometer while stopped is way below the 0 , it moves like normal but now is way off, like 15 mph . Anyone ever see this before or know how to fix it? Not sure what happened as I am pretty sure it was working fine the day before.

    I tried disconnecting the battery for a bit but same thing.

    What holds it at 0?

    Truck is a 2012 with 101k issue free miles .

    Only fix i know of is remove the plastic lens and pull needle off and with trucking running in park put needle back on at 0 mph. Guess this also happens to rpm guage. Same thing truck running put needle back on at 700 rpm.

    Still wondering what causes this

    Huh! I never noticed that there's no peg at zero!
    This must be a glitch in the firmware.

    My cluster completely failed, fuel needle just fell off driving down the road. Maybe they had an adhesive problem or something.

    This may or may not help, posted in a previous thread, but I had this problem with my tach after a bunch of work on the truck. Pulling off the needle and putting it back on didn't help, it just dropped right back down. I can't explain it, but I had to move the needle with it running (had the SCT hooked up to monitor real RPM - which WAS accurate, the truck knew its RPM, just the gauge was wrong). It has been fine since.
