    Default Corolla gli speedometer problem

    Salam all

    Yesterday I was getting some wire work in my rolla gli 09 and I saw some dust in the speedo, I asked the electrician if he can open the glass so that I can clean it. He opened and I cleaned it but my fingure touch 2 of the needles and they lost their actual position. The guy said sir yeh sahi ho jaye jab meter connect karen ge. All the needles came to their actual postion.except the petrol gauge

    Now its something like Corolla gli speedometer problem - b6b629ea 6c63 f8b3
    And when hit the switchCorolla gli speedometer problem - b6b629ea 6c92 4656

    Now as u see the needle's position the low fuel indicator shold be on but it isnt coz there is more fuel than its showing
    The needle has changed its initial position

    How to solve this issue, experts need ur help

    There are little servo motors inside the odometer. They get damaged if you apply the slightest pressure on them. If the servo motor is fixable then you're safe. If it isn't you'll have to get a new odometer.

    The gauge comes up and goes down very fine, the only issue is that it has lost its initial state

    If the servo motor is damged will the gauge work? How can I know if it can be repaired?

    The needle will work, but it will not be in the initial position it was in.

    Ask an electrician who sells/repairs odometers. Go to someone well-known, someone who actually knows what to do.

    What other ones were touched? The fuel gauge needle might have been forced to more pressure as compared to the other ones.

    Ussi, just take the pin out, by pulling it, dont move it like a screw, just pull it and try to fix it again in the default position. Before doing this just try this method on a wall clock. Motor seems fine as it is going up and down normally.

    its a bobbin coil but very damped, you moved the initial rest position, this can be rectified by a meter repair person by taking off the needle and putting it back correctly with another gauge available for reference.

    These meters have SMD LEDs factory soldered on the board. You cant change them since they are not removable.
