Have you had the rear diff serviced regularly? If not, this is most likely the cause. Metal builds up on the sensor, and "shorts" it out. Keeping your diff serviced every 30K should help them last longer.

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.

EtON 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel 5 speed trans. ABS light on, brake light on and speedometer starts working about 20mph.


there is an ABS sensor on top of the rear axle, and they are known to cause these symptoms-check the wiring, connector, and replace it if necessary, they are about $30 and is held in place with one bolt.

Hi, Autozone will scan your vehicle for free 1997 and newer vehicles. Your brake fluid being low will also make the brake light go on. Ihope this helped you out. Good luck, .....MIKE-
