The actuator test is just a cluster test. If the gauge doesn't move correctly during the test - it should move the same as the other small gauges - there is a problem within the cluster. The test doesn't reset the gauges. It just shows if they are functioning correctly. If your gauge functioned properly during the test the problem would be elsewhere. As it doesn't function properly during the test the problem is with the cluster.

Today I filled the LJ up with gas. It was reading 1/4 tank. I put in 10.5 gallons and it went to full. With 8.5 gallons it should have been reading slightly under half a tank.
