The Tachometer usually get its drive pulses from the coil. Check the connection of the wires and connecting plugs around the coil. If that doesn't fix it, check the multipin connecting plug on the rear of the instrument panel in the dash.

Instrument panel guages work one day the not the next, whats the problem?


It's tach, not tack, short for tachometer. Were these gauges installed by unionized people? It could have been the gauges' day off, as per their collective agreement.
Most instrument panel woes are caused by bad grounds. Most panels are below the front glass, and if this leaks, guess where the water goes? Dashboard problems are a bear to fix sometimes, and costly in terms of labor. Have someone steal the car.

Odometer, tachometer, speedometer, and gas gauge suddenly stopped working.


Sounds like the body control module has gone bad. It has a relay that caries considerable current to all of these accesories and wears out.
It can also be a solder joint on the circuit board where this relay mounts.
Hope this helps, Robert

Tachometer stopped working completely but all other gauges are fine. Tachometer would work off and on for a few days before completely not working. "Check engine light" stays on. All fuses are fine. This...


It's very UNLIKELY the jumpstart had anything to do with it, unless you accidentally connected the battery in 'reverse polarity', which causes the electrical system voltages to 'DROP' instantaneously to near zero volts and create 'current spiking' in all active circuits. Nevertheless, the microcomp in the instrument cluster which drives the TACH has protective curcuits. The only solutions are to eliminate any problems in the wiring between the ECM/PCM and the instrument cluster, and bench test the tach to determine if it's working properly. Process of elimination - if wiring is ok and the Tach is ok, then the problem is in the ECM/PCM.

2001 honda civic xe tachometer stopped working & no engine light came on


I simply changed the spark plugs and made sure to look under the driver seat dash where all the electrical wires were and simply started to trace wires, jiggled to see if any were loose, checked my fuses, and on the clutch there is a plastic sensor that needed to be pushed back into its spot..reseated and whaa laa it was fixed.

so my advice, check for any loose wires under you dash board in the driver seat before you go spending money on other peoples advice on this site because it should be for free in my opinion. but thats my opinion.
