99 z28 instrument panel question

Hello,
I have a quick question.
Whenever i start my camaro, my tach, speedo and other gauges quickly peg up a max and then go back down and reset to normal. My trip meter resests to 0 also. Now my clock and radio presets do not get lost.
I do not hear and changes from the engine when this happens. the car starts normally.

Could this be a ground issue or something more severe?

Thank you

Joe

How old is the battery? 98 & 99 F-bodies will do this when the battery is nearing the end of it's life.

67 Camaro: 454/TH400/4.10 12 bolt. Lots of options: PS/PDB/PW, tilt, tach, gauges and more. K-K + 797-Z...

I really dont know how old the battery is. I was with the car when i bought it back in september of 07. Besides using a voltmeter, is there a better way to test the strength of a battery?
