Question about 1994 Dodge Shadow

Open Question

Tachometer stops working randomly in my 1994 Dodge Shadow ES. It is random, and works when it wants to. Sometimes it seems like it is sticking, as it jumps through the revolutions. Rumor has it these are not cable driven, but electronic? What would i need to do to fix this, without having to buy a new aftermarket tach? Thanks!

SOURCE: Speedometer and Tachometer

common problem on caravans bad solder joints on circuit board of instrument cluster.(known problem dodge refuses to acknowledge) remove cluster from dash use a cheap $12.00 Low Power soldering iron from radio shack and reheat solder joints on cluster. can be very hard to notice broken solder joints to the untrained eye. trust me on 90% of all weird electrical problems this model is known for this cures it. not bcm or ecm modules like some mechanics would have you believe.

Try giving it a good rap on dash above speedo, see what happens, and get back to me, it may have same problem as my old 95' neon did.

SOURCE: Can I put an aftermarket Tachometer on a 1987 Ford

its really easy im not to familiar with that vehicle but it all works the same if it hasd a distributer and a seperate coil or even a dis cap mounted coil either way there is two wires that run into that actual coil all you have to do is tap into them and figure out which way works just pull back the unsulation on the two wires that your tac will come with there might be 3 but one will be a ground and just kinda half way hook it up till you see the tac come to life its really easy just be patient and dont worry if the wires are wrong it wont blow anything up the tac just wont work until you hook it up right 9 times out of 10 when you buy a tach it comes with directions

Tachometer stopped working then the speedometer now the service engine comes on randomly and there is a strange noise when starting the blazer and sometimes it almost seems as though it is not going to...

The speedometer and tachometer problem on your Trailblazer instrument cluster is very common on the 03-06 models. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and can be fixed. Check out this page for more on how to get it fixed - Trailblazer tachometer problems

Haveing problem removing rear brake drums off a 1994 Dodge shadow 2.2 liter, do I need a wheel puller?

No special tool needed these things just get stubborn sometimes. The last time I had one stick I had to take a large regular flat head screw driver and use it to pry the drum off a little at a time to do the brakes. Turned out to be the old brakes being adjusted too far out. If your parking brake is engaged it will also lock the drum on because the pads are in contact with the drums.
