Tach Stopped Working And Is Reading Wrong

Recommended Posts

2003 Yukon Denali

 

The tach sits at 2000 rpm when the truck is off and if I accelerate past 2000 it sometimes freezes at the higher rpm.

 

Sometimes I turn on the truck an it's sitiing at 4000 rpm and I accelerate normally and the gauge pegs out at 6000 rpm.

 

Bottom line: Gauge is always wrong.

 

I also noticed a similar problem with the volt meter as well. Sometimes shows 9 volts while my aftermarket one is showing 13.6 volts.

 

Do I need a new dash? Is there a cheap fix?

possibly on the new dash...but if you can get the stepper motors fixed, it might be cheaper...

Ok it seems to work fine during the day and at night or as it gets cooler the tach starts to read high and get stuck and the volt meter reads low and is also wrong.

If you have less than 100 k miles, I would ask the dealer to replace it under recall. If over 100k miles (like me) order one. I got mine here!
