It gets its signal from a photo cell on the gearbox/autobox side of the engine.If you look around the housing that connects the engine to the box you should see it,and if you take the screw that holds it out it will slide out clean the eye and replace .adrian,,,,

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

I have a ford ikon 2001 model i live in south africa ,my rev counter stays at zero doesnt move anywhere clock dials and lights works fine just the rev counter bought the vehicle as is. any solutions please...


if everything is working and there is no engine lights on then it may just be the connection on the dash to the wiring or the rev counter has failed and just needs replacing, its usually the connections that go discoloured and loses connection and they just need a clean with some enrycloth. or switch cleaner.

Kia mentor 2000 rev counter works on and off


The rev counter of course is electronic, most likely the tiny DC motor (called a stepper motor) that moves the counter is defective or the circuit for it is, you need to remove the instrument cluster from the dash and send it out for repair at a approved repair center. Many of these sites can be found by just a google search.

Gauge issue


Hi Nadhem, I believe you have an electrical short circuit somewhere along the lines. Check them out and look for anything touching the body where the insulation has rubbed through. Regards John

All of a sudden wont go forward or rev .


Hello, The first thing to check is the transmission fluid level. When you check the fluid does it have a burnt smell? If so, you probably have an internal failure. Have you had the transmission serviced? Your trans filter may be stopped up.
I hope this helps.
