I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan Sport - 190,000 miles - V6 3.3 ltr Engine. The battery died last week. While trying to crank the engine turned over, but slowly with pinging noise. I noticed the speedometer needle bouncing wildly around. I got a jump from my brother's golf cart. He put the cable to the wrong terminal (caused arc) - pulled it off right away and found correct terminal. With ignition no on the needle seems to be in the 6 o'clock position, then moves up behind the peg once ignition is turned on. This is the only problem noticed - hopefully no other probs from the arc. Anyway, one mechanic says I need to take the instrument panel glass off and physically pull the needle up and over the peg. Does this sound right? Thanks for your help in advance. Mike
have the same problem?
