  • '05 tach issues

    Hey all -

    Anyone ever hear of any issues regarding the tach not reading correctly? Car is a '05. It's not all of the time but every once in a while my tach reads a good 500 - 1500 low. The next time I start it, perfect.
    I noticed it now that it is getting colder.

    Thanks!

    A known problem have been the cluster stepper motors. This guy offers a fix up kit. Now I haven't tried any but, this seems cheaper than buying a new one. When I last worked we had a Ford contracted repair station that the parts department used to have clusters repaired also.
    You can also remove the battery cable for 5 minutes and put the PCM into relearn strategy, see if that helps. Doubt it will last though, I think the gauge has seen better days.

      Perfect, thanks Phil :beer:

      I'll order one up today, I'm sure Ford would want a small stack of Benjamin's for a new one.
