The dash on my...

The dash on my 2004 Cadillac SRX is showing incorrect reading it's working but the miles is wrong,the speed meter is 40mph off. The heater is in 20 @30 not 70 thru 90. EVERYTHING IS READING WRONG BUT IT WORKS

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

I had a new coolant put on at the mechanic shop a week ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SRX yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing I was going to take back to shop. I called them to see if they had touch anything to do with this. They said no. I've been reading trying to see if it need reseting
