2012 forte ex Tachometer

My tachometer stopped working yesterday. Everything else about the car is fine, drives good, sounds good. I tried researching into the fuses and saw that the cluster has a 10A fuse but that's as far as I can get. I checked the manual and don't exactly know which one controls the tachometer. I found 3 fuses under the hood labeled sensors, 2 of which were 10A. I checked those and neither were blown but had some calcium build up or whatever the white stuff is. I scrapped some off and receded the fuses and I just started the car and the tach is back to working. I won't be able to drive it until after I get out of work but does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Do one of those fuses control the tach or was it just a coincidence that it started working again?

just to follow up, haven't driven yet but sensor 3 is labeled "ECM, PCM, Vehicle Speed Sensor, Pulse Generator 'A', Stop Lamp Switch and sensor 2 is labeled Oil control Valve, Camshaft Position Sensor (intake,exhaust), F/PUMP Relay, C/Fan LO Relay, Immobilizer Moduler... not sure if either of those would be directly connected with the tachometer.
