Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Speedometer won't work

My speedometer stopped working on my 98 dodge dakota. My ABS/ park break lights are on as well. I changed my speed sensor on my tranny, and my car shifts out good now, but my speedometer still won't work. I changed the speed sensor on the back diffential hoping this would solve the problem, but still the speedo don't work, and the lights are still on. Whats am I doing wrong?

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE BROKEN WIRE LEADING TO SPEED SENSOR IN REAR DIFF..CHECK FOR ANY SPOTS IN HARNESS WHERE IT LOOKS OUT OF PLACE OR RUBBING ON SOMETHING..ALSO CHECK FOR SPREAD CONNECTIONS IN PLUG AT SENSOR..CHECK ALL FUSES RELATED TO ABS SYSTEM IN UNDERHOOD FUSE/RELAY CENTER

The sensor in the differential is for the ABS. Did you replace the sensor for the speedometer in the end of the transmission?
And is the check engine light on ?

The speed sensor that controls the speedometer is located in the top of the rear differential housing, this is your most likely problem and is very common with this vehicle. Being that it is a direct input to the ABS module it will cause those indicators to illuminate when the sensor fails.

Speedometer and Odometer not working , Break Light and Abs light on


Most likely you have a check engine light on also. And if you have codes pulled it will be 0500, speed sensor. Replace the one on the rear axle and all should be good. Oh and don,t forget to have code cleared.

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9L V6 with a 5 spd. manual transmission. The Speedometer quit working. The oil pressure gauge and stuff works but the speedo does not. Could this be a speed sensor problem?


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.
