Can a bad range sensor cause my spedometer not to work and incorrect gear ratios on 2 3 and 4? if now what could it be?

the abs unit tells the ecu and the gearbox the speed and when to change gear if this is not working it could be one of these two the abs unit or the wheel sensor, the wheel sensor there are 4 of them in uk left front wheel is the speedo signal sensor, if abs system is dead i.e saying there is no faults or even connecting to a reader there is a fault. to determine the gear the gearbox needs the signal range sensor incorrect means there is a signal coming to the gear box but its erratic.

My pick up no mark speed in the spedometer and the transmition change unsycronised

Sounds like you need to replace the speed sensor. It's normally mounted to the rear of the transmission or transfer case (if equipped).

Hi. If got a 2004 T30 v/w transporter 6 speed gearbox that lost it drive,it sounds like the driveshaft spines or the differential has broken, can you tell me if there is a common fault with the gearboxs...

The most common failure in any manual transmission is a broken tooth on one of the gears, unfortunately gear lube is very sticky and often times it will pick up a broken tooth and run that chunk back through other gears causing massive damage. I would refrain from driving it and get it fixed. Some of those gear are very expensive. I don't know that this transmission has a specific weak spot, I haven't heard anything negative about it. VW usually makes a great transmission.

5 speed may be practical 6 speed would be very expensive and the 5 speed would probably be a closer fit

Sounds like the problem is the transmission itself. Do you know the last time it was serviced?

Probably needs a gearbox rebuild. Take it to a specialist or you may waste a lot of money using odd job mechanics.
