1995 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles
I own a 1995 Ford Ranger and recently replaced the old instrument cluster (no tach) with a fully functional cluster from a 2001 Ford Sport Trac (with tach).
The cluster is completely compatible and has no issues, except for the fact that the tach acts sluggish and weak.
I would like to know what all is involved in the tachometer receiving its signal and how can I troubleshoot the issue? Its worth mentioning that before replacing the original instrument cluster, I did have a check engine light, and the speedometer did not function. After replacing the VSS the check engine light went off but the speedometer did not function. I assumed the cluster was bad, but could the speedo cable be bad as well? Does this electric cable have any effect on the tachometer?
have the same problem?
