2000 Acura flaky Tachometer

My tach has stopped working properly. It either reads o or 1000rpm no matter how fast I’m going. Dealer suggests circuit board in the instrument cluster for big bucks. I can get a used cluster complete for $75. Anybody know if a good mechanic could swap out the circuit boards from the used cluster? Thanks

Possibly, but it would be easier to just swap the whole cluster.

I’ve had speedometers and tachometers repaired by a local speedometer shop. Check your local phone book and see if there is a similar shop in your area.

Of course, I pulled the units out of the dashboard myself, saving lots of labor. If you simply drop the car off somewhere it could be expensive.
