    Recheck the connections on the battery, clean and tight and load test it new can be bad check all grounds, most important part of any charging system:s

    If after checking what Jack suggested, if you are still having problems... Look into checking the charging system... See the self help section.

    From your description, it sounds like a bad ground somewhere in the system and it's back feeding through the tach.
