I have a few, if you need a new one let me know
I don't know how the rpm meter works on your car but new cars use a Stepper Motor to turn the needle. If yours has a stepper motor it could be electrical problems, fuse, wires broke, etc. If it's the stepper motor you might need to replace it. I'm guessing but I suspect you need to get the dash off to work on the back of that gauge.
bad cluster motor, burnt out traces on the cluster.. number of possible causes.
Hi, I have the cluster out but how can I tell if it has a stepper motor?
Would you happen to have the back plastic trim that covers the instrument clover? Thanks.
Thanks for the videos.
I have complete instrument clusters. Not 100% sure what you mean by cover, but I may have it.
The question came up in this thread about the rpm hand. There was a posting about issues with this Tach and the problem may have been resolved.. For the '91, 1.9l engine the Haynes repair manual shows the Tach is driven off a computer. It doesn't show the details of the Tach so it could be an analog voltage or digital pulses. It looks like an analog voltage fed to the inside of the Tach and that would have a needle on a meter similar to the old type of voltmeter. The other end of the supply voltage to the Tach comes from a fuse. If you replace the Tach and the new one doesn't work you probably have a wiring problem.
Thanks. I replaced the cluster. The tac now works. Thanks
Hi and thanks. I’m not sure what it’s called but it’s the part of the dash (black in color) that you have to remove the screws from and then remove it in order to get to the cluster as the cluster sits behind it. Thanks.
shoot me a photo of what you need. I may still have it. I know I been getting rid of a lot of parts like that but I may still have one or two.
Is this the part?
Yes the picture you posted is what I’m talking about. It looks really close to mine and I believe it’ll work. How can I get in touch with you? Thanks.
I have one ,,if he doesn't
I'll take a picture of mine tomorrow and post it . ,, not trying to steal a sale ,,just sharing ,,lol ,,if Austin 86 doesn't want to sale his , just saying I got one , I live in Biloxi,Mississippi ,,zip code 39532 .
I may have one close to yours. Let me look again. But I'm pretty sure that is my last one off my 88 exp.
Can you take a picture of yours?
