Default Replacement Battery - gas/temp gauge goes wild

2003 Accord V6 EX had a battery die. In Florida as in the North heat and cold are it's enemy but got 5 years out of it.
After Walmart replacement my Fuel and Temp gauge spiked hard over when the ignition was turned on and was unusable.
Was going to buy a replacement cluster cause it's so easy to R/R but found a site that told me to remove the cover from the
cluster and just move the two needles back to the far left rest position. Worked like a charm.

Had to post this easy fix!
Dealer would have probably pulled hundreds from my account for this!
