You don't have to connect it to the coil.Under the driver's seat, they is a single slot which is used for timing by the mechanic, you can just connect it to it. As for power for the light, just go under the dash and spilt connect to one of the live wires.See link below at the picture section;http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/previa/

the green is the signal wire and it goes to the negative side of the ignition coil

Usually. It can also pull the signal from a spark wire.

The green wire from the tach goes to the negative side of the coil.

It goes to the top wire on the coil, the one that usually has a cover over it.

A bad ignition coil can cause your 1987 Acura tachometer to quit working. A bad tachometer cable or ground wire can also cause it to quit working.

bad ground wire at the coil probably

You will need to connect the tach to a ground and +12v source, the signal wire will have to be connected to the ground on the coil. Since the truck is fuel injected, you will likely have to find a way to wire it in with the connector on the coil. Kyrasis6 Mazdatruckin.com

you can wireit directly to the coil... check for the positive and negative wires or there is also a place in your distributor.......

User Avatar

You will need to hook up your tachometer to the coil connector. After disconnecting the throttle sensor and applying the hand brake, look for the plain black wire at the coil connector to hook it up to.

User Avatar

You can check for an instruction sheet at the manufacturer's website, but most tachs have a black wire for ground, a red wire that is hot, a white wire that is hot, and a green wire that goes to the negative or tach terminal of the coil.

hook your green wire from the tach to the white wire from the coil PAC it should be a white and a yellow wire coming from the coil. the tach should have a white wire that will be your light inside the tach a red wire for power and a black for ground.. good luck

There is a wire next to the large (red) battery wire that is for the tachometer. Check to see if you plugged it back in and is the connection good.

If it has a distributor, follow the directions that came with the tach. The coil will be mounted on the left valve cover- just follow the coil wire from the distributor. If the vehicle has a DIS setup, you won't be able to use that tach as there is no distributor.

White wire coming from the distributor.... remove a section of sleeve from wire and splice the signal wire from tachometer to it!

i dont know whwere is the tachometer wire of 2001 ford windstar

The green wire is supposed to go to the negative wire of the coil , that is usually a white wire, but make sure that the tachometer documents tell you to use the negative wire it is usually the white wire. If you have a test light hook the cramp to the negative of the battery and check the two wires if the light glows that is the positive, connect the green wire to the other wire it will be the negative. There are some that say to use the positive, ""PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTION VERY CAREFULLY"" Or you could short out the coil and the igition module.

It's not on the coil. The powertrain control module (PCM), located under the dash, provides the signal to the tachometer. By the way, your 1992 Saturn sedan (presuming it's a dual overhead cam) is an SL2, not an SC2.
