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.
You should be able to use the power side of Injector #1 for the tach signal
Check for a loose "Tach" wire
i like to know what wire it is if any one knows email it to me email@example.com thanks
In the wiring harness behind the parking brake. You will have to remove the plastic shield and dig around in the wires for it. Pink with White or white with pink. Can't remember. Consult your remote starter manual.
Your tach wire color is Gray. And it's located at Coil on passenger side of the engine. This goes for 1997 through 2001.
There should be installing instructions with the tach. If not contact the manufacturer.
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
Your Tach Signal wire is Gray and Dark Blue (Gray/Dark Blue). Same wire, marked with both colors. This means the wire is GRAY with a dark blue line through it. It is located at the Coil pack on top of valve cover. --- This wire above is a 2 Cylinder Signal. 3.0L Tach Wire is GRAY/RED at Powertrain Control Module (PCM). 3.3L & 3.8L Tach Wire is GRAY/RED, DARK BLUE/TAN And RED/YELLOW at PCM. (Each wire is a 2 cylinder signal.)
Remote starters can use the AC signal from the alternator as an alternate signal which is not produced until the engine is running. On most cars if you access the PROPER wire for the tach it almost always is strong enough. Double check your wiring diagrams and make sure you are accessing the correct wire from the coil pak or ignition coils.
Connect the green wire to the brown striped black wire.
the red one
I wasnt aware Chevy used a 400cc engine
For any of you who may have been watching this question, I'll give you the answer myself. The answer is YES. After purchasing the one with the factory tach and installing it, everything works like it should.
You can use any brand of remote start, but the key is that you will need a bypass module since this particular model has Passlock II (which is GM's anti-theft solution). Most all the wires you need to get to are located in the ignition harness (with the possible exception of the tach wire).
you have to tap into the coil wires the negative wire on the coil plug.
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.
its electronic cause of the distributorless ignition.
As far as what tachs will work: buy a tach that has what is called an "inductive" pickup. this is a clip that you put around a spark plug wire, it will give your tach the signal it needs from the engine. the rest of the basic instructions, even though they wont be for your exact car, will be in the package with the tach.
that car has a rev limiter to make ur tach go higher find and eliminate it
theirs a green wire by distributer that is for the tach
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.
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/
