does the car actually rev over 2000 rpm or does the tach just not go over 2000 and the engine continues going until you shift(like normal driving)???

I have the same problem with my car. I have a 90 Celica GT but my Tach doesnt move at all. And none of my dash lights work either. I've changed all my lights but they still dont work. Does anyone know whats wrong???

LOL.. as for the dude with non-working dash lights.. You may just need a new rheostat (dimmer switch)... Um.. so yea.. You have an electrical issue.. If you don't know electrical.. take your car to a qualified mechanic/auto electric person..

As for the dude with the barely working tachometer.. Pop your hood.. go to the diag box on the left wheel well.. pop the cap on the diag box.. look at the diagram and find the terminal labeled -IG.. put positive probe on the terminal and of course your ground probe goes on a ground spot.. like the battery neg. terminal.

Do this with the engine started.. your multi-meter should start reading out a low voltage.. now rev the engine.. slowly go higher and higher and see that the voltage continues to raise with out interruption.. if that happens then you have a problem with the tach or the wiring in the cabin. I have a feeling your tach is dead..
