Track car, has not been fired up in a while. Fired up fine, runs strong, but tach needle is either on zero or 2000 rpm. I did swap in another distributor last year because of random cutting out which I think I traced to a bad Hall Sender. Any ideas on tach needle problem? :confused: Thanks :)

96 Passat B4V, ALH engine out of a 2002 Jetta, some IE Rods and ASV Pistons. Nothing drivable yet though
DId you ever find the solution to this? My tach hangs at 3k rpm when the car is idling at ~900 rpm according to VCDS (ALH CE2 and MK3 TDI instrument cluster).

My 84 GTI was doing the same. I tried everything to fix it with no luck.. I then replaced the cluster and that did the trick.
