Who manufactured the tach? Maybe they have a web site and instructions? Did you tach come with instructions?

I looked at autometer instructions for your vehicle, have to use an adapter, it ties into the power wire for your coil pack. The adapter costs about 97 bucks, not including tax.

Different tach manufacturers may have different hook-ups?

Where do I connect for engine RPM signal on 2007 Chevy Tahoe 4WD


I guess you are trying to hook up an aftermarket tach? Don't bother. its a digital signal put out by the pcm. If the tach is capable it should come with specific instructions. Combine that with a known correct wiring schematic of your truck and... maybe. There is no distributor anymore to hook these up to. Replace the broken instrument cluster with a good one. A diagnostic computer not a code reader will give this info if you can get your hands on one for tune up and testing.

I never worked on a Suzuki so if this has a distributor look for a connector that has the letter T on it
If it is a distributorless ignition the inginition module will have the same marking for the tachometer.
If you do not see any reference such as I mentioned do not connect any wires anywhere for this tach until you know from someone else that has a better idea

Need to know which wire to spice to hook up a sefl installed tachometer.


The factory Tach on the dash uses Instrument Cluster connector pin C13 its a yellow/white wire. Or off the ECM pin #47 (also yellow/white wire) that is the ECM's Tach out signal. Be careful not to wire it wrong it could blow your ECM or TCM computers
