Speedometer intermittent and ABS/Brake light stays on

We have a 1998 Dodge Ram Van 1500. The speedometer started working intermittently. Sometimes it won't go past 30 mph and then sometimes it will just starts working normally. Also, the ABS & brake lights stay on. We had the brakes, hoses and calipers replaced, lights are still on.

Vehicle speed sensor located on top of the rear diff at the brake line clamp a single bolt with a wiring harness. replacement from NAPA comes with a new extension harness. use grease on the terminals before assembly.

It sounds like it is the speedometer cable that goes from the speedometer gauge to the transmission is wearing out.unless you have done one of these before then i would suggest having someone do it for you.
