yes the speed sensor on the top of the diferencial controls the speedometer, milage, and the ABS breaking system. that light should be on as well, I had the same problem for about a year until I got myself a diagnostic computer, plugged it in and there I got all my codes.

Check the ground wire from the engine to the firewall. It is a flat braided uncoated wire and should be easy to distinguish. Make sure that it is clean and tight.

I have a 91 dodge ram 150 spedo works but my odomiter does not. What should look for?

There is a small plastic gear inside the speedometer that turns the odometer, it's broken. It can be replaced, but requires you to remove the speedometer from the dash to tear it apart. Your best bet for finding another gear would be from a truck at the junkyard.

Speedometer doesn't work on dodge ram 1500, reading codes 950 and 999

First off you need to determine if it's the speedometer head or the (vss) vehicle speed sensor,
First check the speedometer by holding in the trip reset button and turn the ignition switch to run,continue to hold the trip button for 10 seconds,and the release,this will run a diagnostic on all the dash lights and gauges,The speedometer will jump up a 1/4 of the way then half,3/4 and then 100% of the needle movement,If all is good there then check the vehicle speed sensor which is located in the top of the axle housing,if you have a scan tool that displays engine data it will show vehicle speed,if you get 0 for speed while driving then replace the (vss) sensor by unplugging the wire harness,remove the 10mm nut in the metal cover and pull the sensor straight up and out,install in reverse order,I would apply a small amount of silicon around the sensor before install to insure there will be no leaks.
After1998 all dodge rams vss are in the rear axle housing.

Have the vehicle scanned and you will probably find that the output shaft speed sensor. This controls the signal for the speedometer and the shifting.

I have a 92 dodge caravan and everything works in it but the guages just quit working the fuse is still good and the lights are still working in the dash

OK, check the sending units that provide the gauges information. these sensor/modules may be malfunctioning. If the speedometer and tachometer are not working, it may be because of the cables.

2000 dodge caravan. Speedometer and odometer quit working and transmission will only work in reverse and low

hi there try to get a price on the speed sensor located on the transmission this sensor tells the computer how fast the van is going in turn the transmission shifts gears and there will be information sent to the speedometer . the reason the van only goes in low gear is to protect the system because the sensor is damaged so replace the speed sensor and try again , let me know how its running after relpaceing the sensor good luck
