So the rpm needle came off when I slammed down my hands on the dashboard to try getting the dashboard lights to come on before ii start the car. The dashboard lights or gauge lights/(gear lights) still havent come on, so my car wont start still. Will it not come on ever since the rpm needle came off and is js lying inside the dashboard? Pls help me. Thank u.

I guess you know now that brute force does nothing for electronic problems but will make things a lot worse. The dash cluster on that car is actually a computer. You are going to need some very expensive equipment to be able to diagnose that problem. You are going to have to use a professional scan tool to interface with the dash cluster to determine if it is working at all and what the issues are with it.
