Depending which one your particular tach calls for -

The Tach wire is BLUE (AC) @ Diagnostic connector between headlight and battery.

The Speed Sense wire is BLUE/WHITE BLUE/WHITE (AC) @ Cruise module above driver kick

Tachometer stopped working. Is it some sensor that I can fix myself?


Year/make/model?

If it has an ignition control module there will be a "tach out" wire it is usually white in color, you can check that wire for tach signal. If no signal replace Ignition control module. If it has proper signal it is likely a bad gauge in the instrument cluster.

How to wire up factory tach for 70 ss chevelle with gauges


The original tachometer was powered from the negative side of the coil.
I don't know how many wires you have to work with, but the one that powers the tach should go to the pigtail wire on the harness for the coil - dist cap.

Hoop up a tachometer on a cavalier92


Hello,
Tachometers generally always attach in the same way, that is, there are 4 wires: red = a switched-on ( hot only when car is running)12 volt source, black = suitable good ground, green = trigger ( the negative side of the distributor or coil), yellow or remaining color is for the light bulb in the tach for night time driving.
Attach the yellow to a wire that has power when your lights go on such as a instrument wire. It is advise able to use a 12 volt circuit tester to probe wires.
Good luck.

What color wire should I tap on the distributer for a tachometer? 1992 honda civic cx


If that engine has an old dist with a coil, try one side of the coil, if that doesn't do it, try the other. If the coil is not present, but a coil pack, you will have wires coming out of it, besides the plug wires, one of them will do it, try the red one. make sure the tach is grounded and just check it with a test wire. It should go. Hope this helps.

Install aftermarket tachometer


I'll take a stab at this, there's better than a 50-50 chance, and you can do no damage if the first try is wrong. Red is +12 volts and Black is chassis ground. that's a given. I would try Blue to coil pack "Tach" terminal, and Green for the dashlight. If I am right about the Blue and Green, a 9-volt battery from Green to Black will light the light if it's not burned out. If the Green doesn't light it, try the Blue, but my bets on the Green. If the Blue doesn't light it either, the bulb is toast.

98 civic lx where is ignition coil?? ++


IT'S A BLUE WIRE ON THE BACK OF THE CONNECTOR THAT WOULD NORMALLY GO TO THE FACTORY TACHOMETER IN THE DASH. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE DASH GAUGE CLUSTER TO GET AT THE CONNECTOR. THE CONNECTOR WILL NOT BE PLUGGED INTO ANYTHING IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FACTORY TACHOMETER (DX, CX, HX ETC...YOU WILL HAVE TO SPLICE INTO OR CUT THE BLUE WIRE FROM THE PLUG. IT GOES TO TACH SIGNAL WIRE ON YOUR NEW TACH.
