Under the fuel gauge is a symbol of the engine, the check engine indicator. Is it on after starting the engine? If on, an error code is stored. Autozone is one store offering free reading of error codes.

If the car was bought from a dealer or used car lot, bring it back for repairs immediately. You should have some kind of warranty to insist that you didn't buy the car with a new problem. If bought privately, you can try appealing to the seller that a problem occurred soon after buying it and see if it can be repaired without cost.

The instrument panel may have been repaired, replaced, modified. The body control module drives the instrument panel.

If you can remove the instrument panel, you can check for evidence of repairs; screws with paint removed as signs of someone removing hardware, wiring harnesses bent a certain way and seemingly out of place, modifications to wiring that appears out of place, etc. Disconnecting the i/p may reveal bent pins or pins pushed out and not level with others to indicate partial connection. That's about all a diyer can do unless you have advanced electronics knowledge and can read wiring schematics from service manuals. A subscription too alldata or Mitchell will give you online access to service manual info equal to factory manuals.
