I just bought a sunpro super tach2 and it shows that it is running to fast. whats the problem

There should be 2 adjustments on the back. A switch for 4-6-8 cyl use and a slider to fine tune the rpm. If you know your car idles at 750rpm, move the slider until the tach reads 750. The switch for cylinder numbers should be self-explanatory and must be set first.

What does the check engine light mean on the 92 town car.

If lit, it means that a DTC or diagnostic trouble code is stored in the computer.
Have it scanned or get the DTC interpreted by looking up the code in the service manual.

HAND-HELD SCAN TOOLS Although stored codes may be read through the flashing of the CHECK ENGINE or SERVICE ENGINE SOON lamp, the use of hand-held scan tools such as Ford's Self-Test Automatic Readout (STAR) tester or the second generation SUPER STAR II tester or their equivalent is highly recommended. There are many manufacturers of these tools; the purchaser must be certain that the tool is proper for the intended use. The scan tool allows any stored faults to be read from the engine controller memory. Use of the scan tool provides additional data during troubleshooting, but does not eliminate the use of the charts. The scan tool makes collecting information easier, but an operator familiar with the system must correctly interpret the data. Fig. 1: Super Star II tester - Ford Motor Co. 84924047.gif
Fig. 2: Inexpensive scan tools, such as this Auto Xray® , are available to interface with your Ford vehicle tccs4p11.jpg
Fig. 3: An economically friendly alternative is this Code Scanner® from SunPro. They are purchased according to manufacturer and are available at many parts stores 91054p14.jpg
Fig. 4: The Code Scanner® from SunPro has no LCD display, just a LED that will flash out the codes and an audible buzzer to alert that the test is in progress 91054p16.jpg

How do I install a Sunpro Super tach 3 in a 1987 Mustang 5.0

The Black wire will connect to body ground, and it should be a good solid ground and if this wire is not grounded well then you might receive a primary voltage shock if you touch anything that is metal or grounded inside of the vehicle when the engine is running.

The Red wire should be connected to power when the key is in the "Run" position only, and a good place to find that source is one of the "IGN" connections at the fuse panel using a covered female spade connector. Use a test light and be certain that the connection only has power when the key is in the "Run" position, and has no power when the key is in the "Off" or "Accessory" position.

The White or Yellow wire should connect to the "LPS" connection at the fuse panel next to the LPS fuse using a covered female spade connector.

The Green wire will connect to the "-" negative side of the ignition coil or to the "Tach" or "Test" lead that runs from the negative side of the ignition coil. To locate the lead run down the wire from the negative side of the ignition coil and the lead should break off from that wire and it should have a tag on the wire that will say either "Tach" or "Test" (sometimes it is just an empty black wire connector) and that is if the lead does not come straight off from the wire connector at the ignition coil. If there is no lead you can get a wire tap connector to tap into the wire from the negative side of the ignition coil and then use a covered male spade connector to connect the Green wire from the tachometer to the wire tap connector.

Here is a diagram to help assist you and if you can not download the image right click on the image and then select "save picture as..." or "save image as..." and from your image viewer you should be able to read this diagram or print it out, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

I1999 dodge ram 1500 5.2 and need to no how to put a tach in

Red wire would go to ignition battery, the black to ground. The third wire, probably green or blue, goes to the negative side of the ignition coil. Is there a wire for dash illumination?

How do I hook-up Sunpro Super tach 2. Wires: 1 each - green, red, white, and black? Or in general how do these type tachometers hook-up?

I've got an install diagram for that around here somewhere but for now, the trigger wire to run the tach itself goes to the "tach" connection next to the "Bat" terminal on the distributor cap. one wire attaches to your dash lighting so it comes on with the dash lights and dims properly, the other wire is likely a ground. If I don't add to this later, try googling Sun electronics...I am fairly sure they have an install page.

Pegging aftermarket tach. SunPro CP2011 installed in 1975 Chevelle. 350/350 Stock HEI. Needle at 9800 if engine running or not. Disconnect pwr wire and needle falls forward to dials. Not back to zero....

had one break like that! my buddy did the same thing! never figured out what it really was but it came down to it was just pushed past it's last leg. not sure if this is you case i would check the signal wire that goes into the engine bay! what ever you have it hook to like the coil etc... if that is fine i would say it is time for a new one or a warranty! good luck

I have a 1994 GMC Sonoma SL and it doesn't have a tach in it, so I brought one made by Sunpro. And my problem is I've never hooked one up. So is there anybody out there that can tell me how to do it? and...

Do you have the instructions that came with it? If not, you can get them online at the sunpro website:
