[DML] Re: Wacky Tach

Vic and Jason - One of our local club members had a variety 
of "interesting behaviors" with dash instruments, including his 
tachometer.  He found a loose or poor ground connection at a ground 
collector terminal that is located behind the vertical carpeted panel 
that is above and aft of the parcel shelf.  If you remove that carpeted 
panel, the ground collector stud (1/4 inch diameter) is facing 
fore/aft, is just above the relay compartment, and has several black 
wires attached to it.  I believe that most of the dash is ultimately 
grounded through this stud.  I would recommend cleaning each wire 
terminal individually, and then tighten everything back up with some 
dielectric grease applied.  Let the List know if this helps.
