My speedometer and my temperature gauges on my 2004 pontiac sunfire will not go back to 0 when the car is shut off. What will it take to fix this problem.

Do they work properly while driving? If so, there is nothing wrong. The gauges are no longer the reliable spring-loaded mechanical devices that were used years ago. They are pointers that are set to various positions by a computer that pulses coils of wire to magnetically move them. The pointers stop moving when the ignition switch is turned off. Any that do go back to 0 are just due to gravity.
