Tachometer not working on my 95 Toyota pickup 4x4 jumping up and down


bad tach, seems .
bad tach, or bad wires to it or power to it bad.
i dont know what engine option you have
but most use the ignitor signal to do this.
later about 1996 the ECU uses CKP sensor to run the tach directly
in that case bad tach, bad wires to tach or bad power feed to it.
it only has 3 wires.
power
ground
sig
one is bad, or its bad.

Hooking up a tach on a 89 harley sportster 883, green wire goes to ignition wire, where and what color is the wire?


Most aftermarket tachometers will employ a 3 wire system. A "power" wire, a "signal" wire and a "ground" wire. On a stock Sportster's ignition coil there will be 2 terminals/posts. 1 post will have a set of white wire on it the other a blue or pink wire. White is switched 12VDC (vehicle power) and the blue/pink is the secondary side of the coil (signal). I'd really need more information to be most helpful.

I need to know where to wire the green wire to read RPM's for an aftermarket tachometer install on a 1999 chevy s10 with a 2.2l 4cyl.


It is usually to the positive side of the coil - also depends on what type of distributor cap you have, if there is a 3-4 wire plug that goes to the cap, one of them should be marked TACH

How to wire a tach on 05 heritage softail


Locate & route Black lead to ground / 2004-later softail: On the frame strap under the seat directly in front of the battery.

Locate & route the pink lead to Signal / For 2004 & later FXST/C/I The #3 cavity in the connector {39b} on the back of the speedometer. The socket terminal on the signal (pk) lead fits the #3 cavity.

Locate & route the Orange and white lead to power / Ummm.. it's saying for 2004 and later to adapt to the fuse block For earlier [ For 1996 to 2003 softail: locate the power lead (o/w) in the tail lamp pin connector {7a} under the seat behind the right rear corner of he battery.] "here you are looking to run it to a fused line, not directly to power/battery" I hope this helped.

I'm installing a harley mini tach ( 3 wire ) on my 2005 carberated fxdwg.. I just need to know is there a signal wire under the dash or do I run it to the coil? And what color is the wire.. nobody can give...


There should be a light green or violet wire coming from speedometer this is your database wire. This is were you hook up your last wire. Hope this helps, from 04-to 07 the wires are pretty much the same color.

wires from speedometer:

light green/ violet = database
black= ground
orange/white= inst power+12vdc

just read over the tach learning procedures for this. Are you sure your hooked up to a good tach source. My notes show its the green wire at the coil. Check your connections and let me know if there good.
