Default 97 xlt tach is not working

my tach is not working on my 97 xlt, I bought the sled for cheap, rebuilt it, and ever since ive had it the tach has not worked. ive tried cleaning connections, thinking it may be because of corrosion. but still doesn't work. all of the other lights and accessories work perfectly.do these tach's usually stop working like that? or is there something pretty common that I can check to get it working again?

thanks,
nick

Start at the stator and work toward the tach.
