Apparently this is one of the potential causes for the rev counter not working. Even though the rev counter isn't working the car is driving very well with no problems. I have located the sensor on the engine but for some reason I can't get the plug connector off it. Is it simply a pull off plug or is there a particular method to remove it?

a rev counter signal usually comes from either the ecu or the back of the alternator, I find it strange they would fit a sensor especially for it when the ecu or alternator can already do it for free,

I'm sure the sensor serves other functions as well but when I googled the rev counter problem this comes up as a possible solution. The wires from the alternator and ecu all look to be ok.

The ifs goes weak with age and is available on ebay for about £7 and there is a silver clip holding the connector onjust prise it off taking care not to lose it! another thing it is fitted to most 2 litre hyundai kia engines and most parts retailers say it does not exist! keith
