06 tach issues

I've been cursed with the 06 tach stepper motor failure. Does anyone have a part number for the replacement motor?

My tach does all kinds of jumping around at idle. Usually sits around 400 rpm, so I'm interested in a fix as well...

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.

Dang. My tach is out too. Acted squirly as others above have posted, then finally died pretty much, unless I go above 75 mph, then it starts to read again, says motor is turning 4000 rpm.

Anyway, all this time I thought it was a simple sensor change out. But after reading this...it's the stepper motor and repair is $175-600????

Mine goes all the way around, and pegs out on the stop needle.

Found this in another thread and have read good reviews about them. Will likely send my cluster to them when I finally get sick of the dancing tach.

06 tach issues-repair

Hello;

Mr. Whizard Here;

Yes we can repair the intermittent tach issues on the 2006 Dodge Ram. It is not a stepper motor problem but rather a problem in the circuitry of the cluster. Say you saw it here and receive $20 off of our regular repair price. If unit has been tampered with in any way then we cannot repair.
