There are a number of ways through which you can diagnose tach problems on a 1996 Maxima. The most basic thing that you can do is to ensure that the connection is correct and that the fuses are not blown.Ê
yes you can.
You could possibly have some common wiring or computer problems that affect the tach and transmission. Run a code check on the computer to see if any problems. show up.
on a lot of vehicles there is a restricter in line, much like on a fuel guage. You dont see your fuel guage move all around when your tank sloshes. I dont know where to find it but it may be your problem
Have it checked for codes, the code will tell you what to diagnose.
It depends on the year and options. Which year model are you asking about? On the 1996-2000 cluster, there's a light between the tach and speedometer for the cruise control (if equipped).
theirs a green wire by distributer that is for the tach
Contact the manufacturer and request an Owner's manual with installation instructions.
IF you have the installation instructions for the tach, it prolly tells you where to attach the tach wire. If not, call the manu. of the tach or search for their website online.
ignition module It's possible that the CDI module went bad. If the car has a tachometer built in to the dash you can use that to make a simple check. Crank the engine while watching the tach. Does the needle on the tach bounce slightly when cranking or does it stay still? If the tach needle doesn't move the CDI module is dead. If the tach needle does move the problem is somewhere else.
Yes you can
This entirely depends on the vehicle and the type of tach your referring to such as a add on tach or an OEM in dash tach. To explain how to install and OEM tach would take far to long. I would suggest a add on tach that mounts basically where ever you want to mount it. Most of these tachs explain the installation instructions. I personally recommend a tach by Autometer you can view their products on the web at the link below. , EzForJesus http://www.autometer.com/
Yes, the cluster assembly is failing.
if you mean tach/tachometer you have find an aftermarket tach driver and plug it in where the original tach plugs in
if the tach is fluxuating and the engine "is not". check on my bio page i have answered an simullar question on tachs its the question listed right below yours on the list...................all the best...................buddy mack
I'm not sure that a tach requiers a fuse .i could not trace out the useage for a fuse on my 91 max.my tach went out.however i did trace out through my chilton schematics that the tach receives its electrical power dirrectly via the acc1 & acc2 relays located beside the fuse block. under the steering wheel .behind the panel closest to the drivers door.on the right side of the fuse panel there are 4 relays .1 brown ,3 blue. the brown is rearwindow defogger, the bottom blue one is the ignishtion relay #1 .the 2 in the mid area are acc1 & acc2 if it is not the relays check for a tach sensor on the bottom of the block it may need replacing..all the best...buddy mack
It should work. I have a 94 w/o a tach and put a LE version cluster with tach in. Works fine. There should still be a tach wire grouped into the harness plugs. Just unplug your old one and plug in the new one that's it.
V tach stands for ventricular tachycardia.
It should work ok if the wire for the tach under the hood is connected and I don't remember which one it is.
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'.
there will be a spot on back of distributor cap it will say tach run wire from there to gauge. You probably need to run a switched 12v lead as well to illuminate the tach at night. The tach slot on the distributor will take care of 'timing' the pulse to the tach. Often times the tach will have a switch setting for 4-6-8 cylinder. Read the manufacturer instructions carefully.
At the dist there should be one to power the dist. & one for tach signal. Unplug one & see if car starts or if tach still works. Can't really remember for sure as its been a while lol. My 1972 tach wire is brown and it has a inline fuse from the factory. Your tach wire will be connected to the negative side of your terminal witch is labeled "tach".
you can install any kind of tach you want to in your car..if you do not have a stock tach then look in your manual for the rmp sensor wire..should be blue or green coming off the distributor...just splice into it...if you have a stock tach you can just splice into the stock tach wires by taking off the dash
If it is an electric speedo it probably is the speed sensor and if it is a manal speedo it is the cable.
