    This is the first Ive ever heard of faulty tachs on a marauder. Interesting enough about 3 months I started my car and the tach took a second before it came alive. I chalked it up to a glitch in the matrix but perhaps my jewel is showing early signs.

    Mine will work intermittently. If I accelerate it works, then goes to zero.

    My tach will sometimes stay at zero and sometimes will lag way behind actual RPM.

    When I lightly tap the face of the cluster, the needle returns to normal operation.

    More of an annoyance for me however, it’s enough to make my eye twitch out of frustration.

    Bump! Any update? I'll be pulling my speedometer this week for light bulb replacement.
    I'm tired of the tach working wrong.

    Are you providing this service? If so how much? Mine is getting worse the more I drive it.

    Had to perfect the fix, then make sure it worked.
