The tach needle is at 9500RPM the speedo needle points almost straight down. When i turn on the key they both sweep through but start and return to these places. I took the gauges apart and reset the needles to the right place, but within 20 minutes of riding they get all weird again. I have the red key, if that can be of any help, but am looking for some help to diag and fix this. Any ideas???,I have had theis problem before. If you can reset your needles then they are not tight enough to stay there long . These needles are usually secured with a drop of glue. Some sets I have had apart do not have glued on needles. It like it when I find these because you can take these apart completely, whereas the glued on needles are a dead end when you can't get them off. Unforunately, they need a half drop of superglue of something to maintain their position on the road and not get juggled loose from vibration. Remember when you glue them on, they will be set slightly below the zero when off, only return to zero with key ON. They best way I found is to take the glass cover off, plug gauges back in temporarily, and experiment where the correct setting is before you get the glue out. Be extremely careful not to use too much glue or get to it anywhere but inside the needle. You have a few seconds before it dries to move it once again if it still isn't going to zero when you turn key on.,,,

Instruments don't work, key stuck in ignition, doesn't shift correctly

Sounds like you need a new car.
With joking aside, the problem with your speedo, tach, gas guage, temp gauge and odometer can probably be one of two things. Check your fuses. If they are fine you may need to replace your cluster panel. I had to have the entire thing changed over my speedo not working right. It was not cheap. You might want to check the relay box under the hood. Does your transmission leak? Check the fuses and relay on it also. Get a new ignition switch and replace the old one if your key is stuck. You can try WD40 on that key but don't expect any miracles. The bearings are likely shot. Sorry I posted all of this bad news. Good luck.

Speedometer, gas gauge, tach don't always work

Remove the chrome bezel around the speedo (3 allen head screws). Raise it up and check that the electrical connections are seated at the front. You will see them when you raise up the chrome panel.

Hope this helps.
