Please make a video of the engine from in the engine bay and also show me the dashboard and then either attach it here or post it as private on YouTube and send me the link.Please check the oil for the vehicle and make sure it is on the dipstick between the hash marks.It would be best if you can find an OBD2 scan tool and scan faults on the vehicle. We see whether or not these lights are legitimate or possibly the instrument cluster has failed. The only way to do that and scan tool.The tachometer not working indicates that the gauge cluster is faulty because it is directly run off the crankshaft position sensor which if the crank position sensor is faulty in and not working the engine will not run.I think you should also get a voltmeter and check to make sure the alternator is putting out over 14 volts, set the meter on DC voltage, put the leads on the battery posts and give me that reading.I'll gladly speak to you on the phone if you want to but I really need the answers from these tests and until I have those it makes no sense for me to call.
