    Tachometer Issue-gctid401593

    At random times my tachometer will begin to wander or sometimes it won't read anything. I can be at a dead stop, throttle up and the tach won't move. Other times I will be cruising at 3.5k rpms and the tach will just start to increase steadily all the way up to 5k or higher. Almost any time this happends I can tap on the gauge with my finger and it will shoot back to normal readings. Haven't had a chance to look at her yet, just checking if anyone else has experienced this. Maybe it's time to go ricer on my bayliner,

    what do you think guys?
    I think you have a Bayliner.

    I thought it was just the older ones that had this trait. Sometimes mine will say 4,000 at idle, but then a quick B-slap to the glass and it snaps out of it.

    Just check / clean the connections and it may fix it.

    Mine was super wacky when I bought it, now it is rare that it acts up but still does on occasion.

      Gauges in a marine environment are destined to get 'funky'...nature of the beast.Faria is really helpful when this happens, especially when their product has passed its warranty phase.
