Remote car starter will not start car

It sounds to me like you're missing a wire. There should be a wire leading to this that sends power to the distributor. If you don't have power to the distributor it won't fire it will just continue to crank over.

1995 honda accord v6 tack jumps sometimes, but sometimes fine.

It is what you call hunting. Carb or throttle body injection?. more than likely TBI. Could be the throttle position sensor,The mass air flow sensor, fuel pressure regulator. have the fuel pressure ck'd first.. then the throttle position sensor. then the maf sensor. Have the maf sensor cleaned, They are very expensive. Make sure the air cleaner is clean, clean. it and the maf work together. - good luck, Ned

Tachometer doesnt work on my 86 ford do i fix this problem?

if the car has a distributor ignition system, the tack wire comes from the distributor plug, not sure what color the wire is, the tack gets it's reading from one of these wires. check wire from back of tack. trace to distributor and check connections. if connected, tack is probably bad.

Tack yes tack tap in wire on distributor

If you have anti theft on your car, it will be hard to install a remote start because your key has a chip in it to tell the computer your key is in the ignition. If you don't have antitheft, you still need to tap into the engine computer circuit to install a remote starter. This is not a do it yourselfer installation.
Or, are you just trying to jump start the starter from uner the hood to bypass the start position on the ignition switch? To do that, turn the key on and jump from the battery positive post to the starter solenoid mounted on the starter.
