First things first.
What year is you're Accent?

To somewhat answer you're question though.

"does it work?" Yes


"Is it dificult to install a tach on the Accents?" No, not really. There's only four wires.(12v ingnition, 12v dash light, a ground, and the RPM signal) The one you need to know about is the RPM signal wire from the ECM. On '95-'99 Accent's I know it is the number six wire on the main harness, it's a solid white wire. On cars with the factory tach in the dash you can just tap into the back of you're guage cluster. I'm not sure if the '00-'01 models are the same.

Welcome to the board Accento.

Some people have done this mod and like Chad said, I'm guessing that it does work. Shouldn't be too hard.

Are you planning to add a tach externally or are you trying to get it in the gauge cluster?

Chad... if you look under the names, there listed is some information and Accento seems to be driving a 1998 Accent. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Umm, unless Australia has different coloured wires which is highlt unlikely, the wire which is to be tapped into is the green wire with a slim white strip down the middle.

All my installation instructions and wiring etc are on my website.

2. Re:Aftermarket Tach.

I have a 97 accent wo the tach. I added a autometer tach to my accent with the help of chad, and here is how to do it.
Your tach wire will connect to the "all white" wire coming off of your ECM which is located underneath your dashboard on the far left on the drivers side. You may set off a airbag light when doing this, I did on mine, so just a warning. After you hook that up, if you look under your steering wheel there is a wire harness coming off the ignition switch, you will need to splice into the black and white wire which is only HOT when the ignition is turned on. For illumination I have been trying to get it hooked up to the dimmer but I didden't do that yet. Post back here if you have a different year accent, and I will help the best I can.
