    Tach quite working

    Last night I installed BigTyla's ground kit and Ninja's fuel power kit.

    in a test drive, fail number one I forgot to plug the harness back into MAS harness. This resulted in very rough idle and Check engine light. Shut down plug in problem solved.

    Go for test drive and car stalls, and wont stay started. turns out that a turbo pipe that I forgot to tighten.

    Put that back together and the car runs fine, showing of my neutral safety switch for my remote start but the remote start wouldn't stay started.

    Started the car myself and noticed that my tach is not working...

    Any clues? Is there a fuse that might of popped?

    Please help.

    Steve, as mentioned in chat, this sounds like a disconnect from the PTU to the tach to the remote start (I could be WAY wrong)....

    Not sure where the path for that tach wiring went, but according to you, you grabbed the tach signal up near the tach itself...

    Any chance a bad foot movement under the dash could have dislodged that connection?

    Sorry, I'm trying...

    OK I don't know exactly what is up but all is working now.

    I checked all my connections to the ecu, nothing looked unplugged, managed to spot the PTU everything looked fine there as well.

    So I just say "Thank you Father"

    Bob, thank you for looking stuff up for me.

    As far as the remote start goes, that particular model is set default to monitor crank voltage from the ignition circuit, not the fuel injector or coil. Did your guy run it as tach and maybe cut a wire accidentally?
