Tach will not work

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Have a 98 Response, with the monsoon engine. The tach will not work. Not sure why, bought a new tach and that was not the issue. Sort of lost now where to look. Ideas? Tracing the wires I guess.....

Yes,.. try the cannon plug first. Also verify you have 12 volts and ground to a appropriate terminals on the back of the tach (key on). The gray wire is the tach signal from the distributor and can be traced back to the distributor. If wiring is all good your problem is probably the ignition module.

The Cannon plug is the connection between boat and engine wiring harnesses. Should be located rearward of drivers side cylinder head on engine. Mark prior to disassembly. Check for corrosion and that pins make snug connection.

Read my post above. That should help you determine if the tach is bad.
