the language is all done inside the dash gauge cluster in the micro possessor

if it keeps resetting to a different one then the issue is usually a programming glitch in the programming of the gauge cluster or the gauge cluster itself

have the gauge cluster reprogrammed if it still does this the gauge cluster will need to be sent out for repairs or replaced i am sorry to say
