SOURCE: tachometer drops to zero rpm

The whole scen looks like revolving around the dashboard cluster. So lets start all over. Do you have the fault come on when the car is in motion? Can you try to ruffle your hand on the wiring harness into the dashboard cluster and see any such flickering.? Does a tap onthe dash board bring in any changes.?
If any of the above is yes, then you have a loose connection inthe cluster, the panel board or the harness/connectors.
This is a difficult one as loose joints are hard to find but with patience.
So equipped with a good lighting check for the connection fault.
If not respond.

2002 nissan sentra SE-R tachometer is sporadic


need some more info is it manual or automatic. diesel or petrol, and engine cc. if auto it can be the signal is not getting to all locations as engine speed goes to auto box first then out of auto box a can go to other devices that need speed signal then to the dash. its the same for manual engines but no signal goes to the auto box control also a bad earth or bad plug on the cam/crank sensor can cause this.

Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus


try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.
