Sometimes it works flawlessly while more commonly is hangs 3-400 rpm less than it should, then while accelerating it will jump into the redline.
I know that GM had similar issues with poorly made stepper motors and it's a common issue with them.
The other option is to buy a new instrument cluster for $5- $600... Or a used one for $200 and still have a crappy stepper motor that will more than likely fail later on... Or have someone else do the repair for around $175.
I'm having a hard time choking those number down when the parts are less than $10 and soldering a motor into a board is fairly easy work and I can buy a better quality part at the same time.
I was hoping that someone had the stepper motor part # so I could get one ordered before I tear it down.
I have spent countless hours searching for a stepper motor for these clusters with no luck. I wish someone would chime in that works in an electronics repair store.
I would love to find a motor and replace my tach motor.
