That should be the white wire rom the dist to coil. eather way you will not hurt the tach if you were to get it wrong. There are only two wires. I would look at the distributor and on the top of the cap there it writing and it will say tach an you can plug it directli into that.

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?

I am hooking up a remote start on a 99 Chevy Astro & can not find a tach wire.


Hey I'm not an expert at remote starts I've only hooked up one in my life I have two of them one in my Durango & one in my Dakota Dakota was installed by best buy & Durango was installed by pc richards I'm not positive but I think tach wires are the same color on all remote starts and mine are purple the tach wire on the Durango is hooked to the #3 fuel injector wires & the Dakota wire is hooked to the coil but the tach wire is purple look back at installation directions you might have a defective remote start unit remember I said I'm not an expert I'm just going. By what I have I really hope this helped you oh by the way the van has an automatic tranny right? Good luck
