When i bought the car the temp gauge didn't work so in the process of it being fixed the dials were altered and the rev counter is just below the '10' mark (approx 8) and the temp gauge hovers above the half way mark, the fuel gauge doesn't reach the top line (ever) even when i've filled the tank and can get no more in it. What should the dials be at when the car is sat ticking over? without moving the speedo shows the car doing 3/4 mph so things do need altering i think.

If like the Clio by pushing and holding in the mileage
trip then turning on the ignition but not starting the
car you can get it into a self test mode, doing so may
settle them, sounds like the RPM is about right 850
or so warm tick over temp should be half way but
it can take a few miles for the last block to light up
to cancel press the button again or it will its self
on turning off the ign or after about 3 min.
As I say this in the Clio but it may work.
