it sure would work.. behind the dashboard are plugs for each function. one for tachometer, one for speedometer, fuel, water temp. ect.. if your new dash doesn't have a tachometer it will not interfere with the speedomet aspect of it. but you will not have a tach obviously. that sucks kid
fuse to the dash gone ???
check the fuses.
its probably a blown fuse or relay
you need a new onr they do this occasionally and then need to be replaced
I'm not sure about the speedometer, but if the tach is not working a good bet would be the tach filter. With age, a wire often breaks off on these. Look in one of the service manuals to find location. The speedometer may have a similar sensor, but I'm not certain. Thanks! I will check out the book ASAP. Appreciate your answering.
There are several things that can cause your engine to misfire and the tachometer to not work properly. The most common cause is a malfunctioning vacuum hose.
sounds like a broken speedometer cable.
Its going bad.
The 240sx does not use a speedometer cable. It is electronic. The VSS (vehicle speed sensor) is located on the transmission. It sends pulses.AnswerI removed my entire guage cluster and never saw a cable, it was all electronic. not sure if that's where the cable would be, but that's what i found, just three plugs coming out of the cluster.
Loose wiring behind the dash.. Pull the cluster and check the wiring or check with the dealer they know about this problem and they may have issued a recall. Hope this helps
