    Tacho problem

    I have a problem with my tacho. It's on my 33 GTST, s2

    With the engine off and ignition off it reads 0 rpm.

    When i turn the ignition on but the engine NOT running, the tacho reads about 1200 rpm.

    Start the car up and it reads about 2200 rpm.


    Any ideas anyone?
    Is it furbared or is it fixable?

    Could just replace it with working one if anyone has a spare?

    Mine started to flicker whilst driving, its a common fault with age. Can be fixed but its 50/50.

    Only issue I had was finding a spare active LSD version as they are rare as rhinos but got one swapped it and all is fine.

    Sounds like the common mental rev counter that plagued me. I attempted to re solder the rev counter motor due to dry solder joints but it didnt work for me ( has for others though) so i bought a second had cluster and transferred the rev counter unit into mine. Fixed!
