Hello. My name is***** will be assisting you. Check that the tach has 12 volts on the purple wire and a good ground and that the gray wire is connected to the S terminal. If you have these the tach is bad. Has the tach been working and been erratic?

No it just stopped working.I was told it was a possible ground issue.

I was not sure which wires to look for. Thank you. And they are located where?

Do you have a volt meter? If yes connect the red test lead to the purple and the black lead to the black terminal. You should read 12 volts key on. Do you have voltage?
