New member greatings a nd 325ix tachometer problems
Hello everyone,

Iím new to bimmerfest but not new to bimmers and beemers motorcycles. I just picked up a 1988 325ix. This is the fourth bimmer since 1998. My previous cars were in chronological order an E28 í83 533i, a E21 í82 320i, and E24 í80 633CSi. My current beemer is a í04 R1150RT.

The 325ix I just bought is in good shape. Iím the third owner, the previous had it for the last 18 years. Itís obvious that he took good care.

The tachometer is not working for most of the time. Occasionally it does for a few minutes. Iím sure the project is electrical and not mechanical. I had similar issues with my E28 but never managed to get it working properly.

Any suggestions of where I can start looking is appreciated.
