    I am looking at purchasing a 97 tacoma but the tach is not working. The speedometer is working but I did noticed that the cruise light was not working. What do you guys think it could be? Thanks

    Could it be anything else besides the fuse?

    I think me and my buddy were talking about something like this yesturday, im not quite sure, but I think he said that a chipped tooth on the crank gear can cause your tach to not work.

    If the cruise light is not coming on could be a bad cruise ecm. If it was blinking you have a fault.

    So for the tach not working it could be a fuse or the lead coming from the Ecm is bad. Or the motor in the tach itself has gone bad(in the cluster itself). ( yes the motors do go bad).

    You dont have a check engine light on do you?
