Why would tachometer go to zero when A/C is turned on, then when car is turned off it won't start. Wait 5 mins and starts right up. Ok, so today I went down and replaced alternator, positive battery cable. Turned car over and started right up, left it to warm up to duplicate daughters driving. Took it to get gas, filled it up and took it to freeway to 75 MPH. Before I left gas station, turned on A/C and lights.
Took car to freeway to 75 MPH, 5 miles later, tach goes to zero. Tried to restart and battery acted like it had no juice. Waited 5 mins, starts right up. Drive off, turn A/c on, tach goes to zero, turn A/C offend tach floated from 1000-1500 then went to zero. Got home turned the car off, tried to restart, acted like there was no juice, waited a few mins, started right up. What did I miss?
Last week the fuel pump was replaced.
Two days ago blown fuse for instrument cluster was pulled and replaced with spare from fuse box.
Car did idle rough a few days ago, idles much smoother now. I know I'm missing something obvious.
Thanks for the help
have the same problem?
