'84 rampage bad tachometer

I recently installed a radio in my 1984 rampage. i bought it used and there were no factory wires, so i ran new ones. i got both switched and constant power from the fuse box. neither of which were the tach fuse (which is fine, so are all the other fuses). ten minutes after, the tach meter just went limp and is so pointing striaght down and will not move. what happened?
btw- i undid all the wiring, double checked the fuses and everything still works but the tach.

This is a case of pure coincidence. It just went bad at the same time you made the repair. Just a fluke,no worries.

I have an 84 Chevy s10 that I'm trying to hook a radio up in. I'm having a problem finding what wire to hook the radio power wier to. Any suggestion? Thanks, Frank


Best way is to take a new wire and place it straight in the fuse box, making sure you dont over load, there are normally spare fuses there go to one of them.

I have a 1984 fiero an when I took my stereo out I went to go turn my dash lights on and now they dont turn on why?


often circuits are run in series through the wiring harness, so a loop is created in the connections to continue to other things, In My Malibu I had to keep my original radio in the trunk wired up due to the computer and all the other stuff the radio had when replacing my factory radio with a new one

I have a 1984 dodge 4x4 1/2 ton. the headlights dont work just the running lights work when i pull the light switch out. i bought new headlights nothing


some times when the dimmer switch on the floor goes bad the headlights will cut out. Try replacing the dimmer switch and the headlights should come back on. My 84 dodge had that exact problem.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Actually, yes, it could be used. The 7 & 8 mm specs are for the insulator diameter/cross section. For the spark, what is important is the center core conductor. Radio suppressed would indicate means that it is designed to reduce interference effect on car radios, Hi-temp would be just that but since all sparkplug wires are designed to operate in the engine compartment, all would have more or less the same capability on this, triple silicon would refer to how many coating/shielding/layer of insulator.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
