The instructions will come with the new tach.
The instructions should come with the tach. If there are none, get in touch with the manufacturer. no tachometer will work straight out of the box with a cavalier of that year, you must buy an adapter. it will only show half RPM
you have to tap into the coil wires the negative wire on the coil plug.
look on the distributor cap, there is a slot marked "tach", connect the hot wire there and ground the other wire
attach the green wire to the negative terminal of the coil. if its an hei, it will have a terminal that says tach on it.
i like to know what wire it is if any one knows email it to me email@example.com thanks
The tach should connect to the distributor.
first of all what kind of motor do you have? Either way your going to need a tack driver to boost the ground signal off of your electronic ingnition box to the remote starter. I've done this myself and it took a long time to figure it out but that's the only way I know 1998 Chevy Cavalier- Your tach wire is WHITE, at your PCM (Powertrain Control Module). 2.4L is white at PCM, and also the 2.2L is white at the PCM.
Since the coil is in the distributor, simply hook the tach 'trigger' wire to the out put on the side of the distributor cap marked 'tach'.
if it is a hei ignition there is a place on the distributor cap that says tach.
what colour is the wire i use to hock up a tach on a 1989 Chevy 350
On the dist., cap, where the wires go in, there is a tab labeled TACH.
pin 48 on the pcm connecter is tach signal connect to your green wire from tach
I wasnt aware Chevy used a 400cc engine
white if its tbi
Blue wire is for a tach I believe
there is a white almost tanish looking solid color wire on the group of wires that plug into the guage cluster use a quick connect to connect the signal wire from the tach to the white wire on the guage cluster
The one marked "tach"
Yes you can no problem.
on the distrubutor where it says tach
its electronic cause of the distributorless ignition.
Tachometers are installed on the positive side of the coil. If you have an older HEI distributor, you should find a male terminal where the electrical connections go designed for a tach installation.
You do need a switched live to the bat terminal, but not to the tach terminal. The tach terminal is the negative side of the coil, the bat terminal is the positive side of the coil. Normally the tach terminal is for the green wire from the tach.
negative side of the coil
Where is the tachometer on a 2004 chevy impala ss
