My voltage gauge is not ready correcly.

When the key is off it reads like this:

When the key is on/motor not running it reads:

I measured the voltage at the back of the volt gauge (boat not running/key on) with my meter and it reads 12.13V. Does anyone have any suggestions, Does anyone repair these gauges? To me it seems like it is just out of adjustment - too high, is it possible to take it apart and "bend" something until it's close. :) Would I be able to find a replacement that would match the old one?

Thanks, Steve

I think you would destroy the gauge by trying to take it apart. For <$25 I would replace it...
