lol yeah they always stay on after you shut them off it depends on how you wire them but when i start it up my EGT gauge will not reset. they go through a test by dropping to 0 then going to the temp but it hasnt been doing that.

Sometimes if the electrical connection isn't the greatest it will freeze and hold at certain temps. Mine does it every once in a while cuz the fuse tap I used doesn't seem to make that great of a connection in the fuse slot.
