Car Batteries
Oldsmobile Cruiser

Replaced the battery on a 1998 cutlass and the fuel gauge jumped now reads 180 off?

You need to take the glass out and use your finger to physically flip the needle back around. It is stuck behind the post and will not right itself. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pull away the dash pieces and then you will see the screws to pull off the glass (plastic), exposing the needles. Move the needle then replace everything, using caution to get the odometer post through the hole in the glass so as to not break it.
