MyOBC crapped out and so did my tach along with it. Is there any way that you could fix this problem without having to go to the dealer or a mechanic?

Any help would be great.

you need to replace either the tach or the cluster computer, i heard somwhere that the tach failing is the first sign of that? can't remember where i read that. anyways its not hard to do it yourself... if you can install a cdplayer then you cna do any of those.
