Most likely a fuse. The box is in the left side rear of the engine bay.

Fuses 10 and 21 control the tach. You might have issues with the Service Indicator (SI) board in the bottom of the instrument cluster if the fuses aren't the problem.

If the fuses are good, then it must be. But those were the same gages that failed by a blown fuse for me (a coin had dropped in the power/lighter plug).
