How do i fix the tachometer?

you have an in cluster factory engine tachometer (RPM)?
the tacho is meter in the cluster and does not use speedo parts or its cable.
its just a meter that needs power, ground and spark tacho signals
if all 3 are good, the meter is bad. period.
the tacho signal goes to the ignition coil minus lug, and will good, as engine runs. so... wires bad, to tacho or tacho bad.
ever price a new one? or even used? $100 used?
you willing to pay that much for just a factory tacho?

there is NO speedo cable. this old 93 is electronic, (rare on most 93 cars made, toy is advanced)
here is the proof, amazing how books dont lie....
there is a speed sensor.
the tacho and speedo use the same power and ground
leaving just one wire,r-g red-green RPM sig. pin 5 of cluster
an is SPARK primary sig. so if only tacho is dead.
then the tacho is bad, or that pin 5 wire is dead.
got you to just 2 possibles.

How do i wire a tachometer into a 2000 daewoo lanos?

I suggest an Auto Electrician....... but you CAN do this.... BASICALLY it is a wire running from the Power Scource.... Ignition Switch,.... to the Tacho, then from Tacho to Distributor if it is a Petrol Vehicle, but a DIESEL is completely different..... THAT needs a Vacuum operated Tacho via the Injector Pump and I STRONGLY Recommend a Electrician for that..... Pain in the *** to fit to a Diesel.... I HAVE A diesel.....

Dont know what wires is what on this xtu e tach to install it in my 1994 civic

you want to install a TACHOMETER.
well, that takes some magic,
depends on WHAT engine is in car.
why not ask, XTU? that question, after all it is THEIR tach.
all cars have different design ignitions, (gas engine)
and have a different type tachometer connection and signal.
post the XTU drawing pin outs, and names
then post country???
then post which of these engines, in GEN 5 CIVICS
you cant fix car engines or for sure modify them if you dont know what is under the hood.

1.3 L D13B2 I4
1.5 L D15B7 I4
1.5 L D15B2 I4
1.5 L D15B8 I4
1.5 L D15Z1 I4
1.5 L D15Z3 I4
1.6 L D16Z6 VTEC I4
1.6 L D16Z9 DOHC I4
1.6 L B16A1/B16A2 VTEC DOHC I4
1.8 L B18B3 I4 (ZA only)

most engines have a TACHO line. (not all) but most
and we must make your TACHO like this electronic signal.
it can be easy or hard.
Some Tacho gauges, will accept all signal, others, very few.
on my car its a 40volt plus. others its less or inverted.

Tachometer doesnt work 1990 jeep wrangler

ok what engine?
2.5L , 4.0L ? 4.2L
the tacho works by spark, signals and this varies by engine type.
1990 has the very odd, French REnix ECU (bendix-renix)
with no scan tool suport ,until 1993.
so scanning it for tacho signal good, is impossible. (DIY)
i sold min long ago. at 250k miles. now have 5 th jeep, 2008, a retired tech.
sold it with those rare books too. all 3 sets.
back then the engine has a small blue book, separate from main FSM.
ebay has them if patient, id recommend owning the FSM on any car
you do the work on. why work blind?> may have these facts.

too bad you didnt post engine. really, so ill will wild guess its a
and answer for that.
the ignition model sense the spark signal to the Tacho
the tach is 3 pin meter. power, ground and signal.
if the signal is good and 12vdc across, power and ground pins
the tacho is bad.
if power and ground are bad fix that first.
if the signal is dead, the wire is cut or grounding out or the ignition wire
green is dead.and bad module,
on the 4.2L the green wire. goes dead kills the coil dead..

since it runs ok
that leaves way.
bad power to tacho, bad tacho.
easy peasy. this car.
other engine can work differently, (not stated)

How many wires 1 ,3 or 4 and colours on lambda sensor? on most lambda sensors the Black wire is the sender wire but on yours I`m sure its blue ,as for the tacho gauge you need a wiring diagram for the ECU as you need to connect it there or pull the dash clocks out (carefully)
