The white plug in the back with 3 wires was part of my problem, worked for a week and came back so i soldered the wires right to the pins and that solved my problem for a few months then acted up again, finally i took the board out and re flowed all the solder joints that looked suspect. so far its been working great. So dont be alarmed if your problem comes back in a few days or weeks.
It's pretty easy to get to the cluster, but before you do that try this. Take the top cover of the cluster off by removing the 2 screws on the side. It is then held on by Velcro. Look down inside and you will see a small white plug. Wiggle the wires on this plug and make sure it is seated in the back of the cluster. Do this while it is running and you may see the tach come on. If not, there is a link in this thread on how to remove the cluster. Basically, you're going to check that the 2 plugs and the wires in them are properly seated. I fixed mine by just pushing in on the white plug. Good luck!

Recently I had my Elise at the dealership & they couldn’t find the fault, I was lucky enough to be put...
The light in my start button stopped working (I know, it's an easy fix), so I used it as an excuse to order a custom replacement from https://billetautomotivebuttons.com/. I upload a logo I made up and they shipped it the next day. Took a while to transverse the earth from down under, but it...
