Default HELP!!! with speedo

ok... so i scraped off my green tint from the back of my instrument panel and put the new red leds in and put all the needles back in and now when i turned the key on the rpm needles went to 4000 and the speedo needle goes to around 45mph and when i try to push them back to zero they just go back up. Any advice as soon as possible would be great. Thanks...

Well that worked. Thanks. But when i rev it up and stuff it wont move...

----------

ok... so this isnt going to be good... the rpms arent working at all. when i start it it goes up to around 1500 rpms which isnt true, and if i rev it up it just goes up a little bit then stays there even after i shut it off...

idk how these clusters work, but you may have pushed the needle down too far
