SOURCE: ABS LIGHT ON, SPEEDOMETER JUMPS TO 20 MPH EVEN IN PARK

Was the sensor an aftermarket one of did you get it from the daler. Aftermarket ones aren't always gapped right. After that check your ABS sensors. I can tell you how if needed. You just need a multi meter.

SOURCE: ABS light & brake light on, problems with speedo working properly

The rear wheel speed sensor is the most common problem on those trucks and will do what you are talking about. It is located at the top of the rear axle in the center. It picks up it's signal from a tone ring on the diff inside! If a tranny input or output sensor is bad then the tranny won't shift properly!

ABS and TC light on. Speedometer and odometer are not working


If the speedo and odometer are not working it could be the speed sensor in the transmission. And the speed sensor could also knock out the ABS and traction control systems.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

I have a 1999 dodge ram 2500 with a diesel. i changed both speed sensors and my speedo dont work and my abs, light and brake light is on as well, when they run a code scanned no codes come up for the


NO code ? the first thing is to make sure all the fuse are good, the next thing is to connect a scan tool and check for readings to speed sensors.

Some of these use the wheel speed sensors to control the speedo and abs , the speed sensors in the transmission are used to control gear shifting, make sure the wheel sensors are working, the most common problems are the wiring to the rear sensor and the rear sensor itself, check on the rear end on the top and make sure connection is good and maybe replace that sensor and see what happens, i have run into this problem a few time but some were diffrent. one was a bad rear speed sensor another one was the cluster and the last was the abs module.

I would start with checking all the fuses first, then move on to replacing the rear speed sensor located on the rear top of the diffrential . good day.

The ab. and tracking light come on and go off and back on


This soundslike a bad speed sensor, you will need to have the computer scanned for codes, the computer turns on the light and stores the code, the code will tell you what has gone wrong and with some testing you can find the problem, the most common problem could be a bad wheel speed sensor, both light are on due to the abs problem because the trac control uses the abs speed sensors to watch wheel speed so if the computer sees a problem with the abs it turns off the trac and turns on the light. after the abs is repaired the trac light will go out, start by having the codes read, a scan tool is needed to get the codes, there are many auto part stores that scan the computer for free but i dont know if they scan for abs codes, you will have to check that out. good day.

Need Help. My 2005 Dodge Ram has the abs and brake light on, and the speedo is not working. I have changed the speed control sensor on the rear diff and the transmisson 2 times, though maybe I got a bad...


The ABS and BRAKE warning lights are on in the cluster because there is an active fault in the ABS module. The speed sensors that you have replaced are not direct inputs to the instrument cluster. Your truck should have one or possibly two front wheel speed sensors and one speed sensor in the rear diff. These are all direct inputs to the ABS module which are then calculated and sent out on the "bus" communication wire which is read by the cluster. It would be much easier to diagnose this problem by knowing what the active codes are in the ABS module.

ABS and bake warning light on and speedo not working


All I can think of is that the speed sensor on the transmission output shaft has become disconnected. Without the ABS system able to know what the output shaft speed is it will disable itself as it needs a reference to determine when a wheel is spinning or locking up. Fix the speed sensor problem and the ABS problem will fall back into line. It might take s little while for the ECU to reset the warning light so if you are in a hurry disconnect the battery negative lead for 5 minutes and this should clear the recorded error.

ABS seems to kick back on brake peddle at slow speeds


low speed activation of abs[will not set off code ] can also do brake studder without touching brake usually does it under 5 mph the problem is one of the sensors is dirty or has some corrosion on it ===chevy back in 2000 did a partial recall on the tahoe for the same problem the fix was to remove the sensor and clean it if the corrosion was to bad than sensor was replaced === the problem with no code is u dont know which sensor is causing problem u would need to remove both and check them

Have replaced ABS module on bmw 525 E39 and ABS now ok, but the ASC lamp will not go off on the dash and fault code 23 (incorrect coding) will not clear from system? Everyone told us the ABS ecu does not...


ABS/ASC module is faulty
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- Most of the time, the problem is the ABS module or one of the 4 wheel speed sensors (& sometimes the brake pressure sensor)
- In my 2002 BMW E39 DSC, three orange (warning) cluster display lights lit, ABS, Brake, & DSC
- The 3 warning lights reset when the ignition is turned off, only to repeatedly reappear within minutes of normal driving
- The fault is often intermittent leading you to falsely believe you've resolved the problem (proper diagnosis is important)
- Sometimes the fault only appears when the engine is hot; other times only at speeds over 40 mph
- Carsoft may erroneously show a rear speed sensor failure; but just replacing the speed sensor may make no difference.
- All the work is in correct diagnosis of the problem; parts replacement is trivial (from 1 to six bolts in a few minutes)
- Hence, this BMW E39 ABS 3-warning light DIY will concentrate on understanding and diagnosis of the problem

Abs light and brake light came on wont turn back off


There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. That sensor went bad and replacing it took care of the problem. What caused mine to go bad was apperantly water got into the differential when launching and loading my boat. check to see if gear lube needs to be replaced also.
The answer above is perfectly correct. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins. Good Luck!
I second the second answer :) My ABS light was on, my BRAKE light was on, my CHECK ENGINE light was on, my SPEEDOMETER wouldn't work below 35 mph, then quit working alltogether. Once the speedomenter quit working the odometer and cruise control quit working. I replaced the rear differential mounted speed sensor ($33) and then reset the CHECK ENGINE light by disconnecting the positive battery cable for a couple of minutes. EVERYTHING then worked.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) remove metal speed sensor cover
d) remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure. Once the speed sensor has a small gap between it and the rear differential housing, insert a flat-blade screwdriver and gently apply upward pressure while gently twisting speed sensor back and forth.
e) disconnect speed sensor from speed sensor cable
f) lubricate new sensor with WD-40, insert into rear differential housing. It will NOT go in all the way by hand, so do NOT force it nor hit it with anything made out of metal.
g) replace metal speed sensor cover
h) Insert speed sensor bolt and tighten LIGHTLY until a small amout of pressure is felt. Tap speed sensor with rubber hammer until it pops into housing. Finish tightening of speed sensor bolt.
i) replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable
h) start vehicle, enjoy,
