ABS and Brake warning lights intermittent may be caused by a failing wheel speed sensor(ABS Sensor) and /or its connector. You may have one on each wheel hub(4WD) or if 2WD, a sensor may be on the rear axle differential center.

2004 dodge ram 5.7 liter hemi... speedometer bounces sometimes does not work at all ..abs light and brake lights are on..check engine sometimes comes on.. i changed te rear speed sensor its still not...


Disconnect the abs control module connector (located on the left fender near firewall) and see if there is any water in the connector. Also, the system also uses the left front speed sensor for the abs and speed inputs. Check the wiring to it and alos for looseness in the hub.

2003 dodge ram 1500 abs & brake light came on. also cruise does not work. any suggestions


Problem: I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 L HEMI. My ABS and Parking Brake lights were illuminated, and my speedometer needle would "bounce". Also when sitting at a stop sign or just sitting idle, the engine would stall, and often times stop running.

Solution: After long research on this problem, I decided to dig in and try to find the problem myself. I replaced the Rear ABS Sensor
($35) that's located on top of the rear differential. Still no fix. I then unplugged the ABS Controller (or Module) that's located directly behind the battery (You should see the metal brake lines running into the top of it.) When I unplugged it, I noticed LOTS of moisture in the plug. Using an air hose, I blew out the water and let it dry good. When I plugged it back in, and hooked the negative battery terminal back up THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED!! Simple fix. Hope this helps.

04 dodge ram 5.7 hemi. Gauges going crazy an sometimes go dead. abs and brake light is on. when parked and running, press brake pedal and speedometer wich is already bouncing, goes up. wipers wont work,...


The first place I would do is check the battery cables, both ends, then check that the body to engine ground cable is intact. Back in the 70s and 80s, Volkswagen Rabbits, Audi Foxes, used a negative cable that ran from the battery to the left fender to the engine. Every once in a while, one came in on the hook or limped it with an intermittent body accessory problem, or frozen speedometer or throttle or clutch cable. In every case, somebody had replaced the negative battery cable with a conventional cable so there was no body ground connection except through the throttle, speedo or clutch cable. these could not carry the body current demand and eventually melted or welded into the cable casing.

Speedometer intermittent and ABS/Brake light stays on


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.
