Question about 2006 Nissan Z

Rapidly fluctuating tachometer. Nissan Wingroad 1999.

Hi I have a 1999 nissan wingroad.
The tachometer gauge works fine sometimes, but sometimes it fluctuates very quickly all over the place, and mostly it is just dead at 0rpm. This has happened since I got new tires put on my car. Could the rev sensor have been knocked when the car was put on the hoist? Where is the sensor located?
Thanks a heap,
Olly

You must be right, the sensor connection could have been moved. Have the mechanic do the checking.

Hi my 1998 Nissan micra k11 fuel gauge keeps fluctuating changes the sensor in the tank still the same


In a conventional system the tank sensor provides a variable ground path for the gauge which is fed by a stable regulated voltage from the instrument regulator. Sometimes the regulator will fail and cause a fluctuating voltage supply depending on engine speed, whether the lights are on or off and suchlike. Mostly such fluctuations, if they seem random, are caused by a less-than-perfect connection somewhere, mostly the fuel tank ground connection. Newer systems use a computer to drive the instruments but excellent connections are equally important..

Why is my gas guage is going up and down in my 1999 caravan?


Could be power fluctuations to the fuel gauge sending unit, a bad sending unit or a bad gauge. The sending unit would be the most likely cause.

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
