Welcome to Justanswer

snapontech :
Most likely the problem is the cruise control sensor located under the brake reservoir the brake fluid eats away at the plastic houseing and causes a short. You will need to fix the short and then your tach should go back to normal. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks Danny

snapontech :

You will have to locate the wire and repair but it is possible
