05 Elise Dash Cluster Dials Misreading

So, a friend says that Lotuses look like theyre flying even when parked but this is ridiculous

When moving the tach tends to be off by ~400 rpm and speedo by ~15 mph. Anyone seen this issue before?

I had this happen when I roll started the car and then turned on the ignition after it was moving. I know there is a 'hard reset' for the cluster involving the trip reset button. Google here to find it.

Never a problem resetting when I follow the directions, especially the "turn the ignition quickly" part. Turning the key too slowly is actually a problem. You want to turn it all the way in one quick turn.

Good luck and report back your results!
