Tach power 97 pathfinder?

Recommended Posts

I have one of the many bad tachs that came on the 97 pathfinder. I have tried all the fixes on the internet and it still dances around all over. The junkyards do not have any and they do not make new ones. So I simply want to disconnect power to the tach. Does anyone know which wire I can disconnect? I already tried the fuse but that takes power away from the entire cluster. If you have a wiring diagram or know which wire please let me know. Thanks. Love my truck, but the dancing tach is driving me crazy.

Try checking page EL-84 and following in the service manual, linked below

If you can not determine which wire disabled the tach, you could remove the cluster, pop off the clear plastic cover and remove the needle from the tach.

You tried re-soldering the 4 main pins? I had this exact problem on my 96, I soldered the pins and It’s still holding up 5 years later. 

 

But if you just wanna turn it off, do what he ^^ said.
