Dodge Dakota overdrive and ABS/brake problem

I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota. A couple of months ago I noticed the transmission was 'jerky' but if I clicked off the overdrive on the end of the gearshift lever, it worked fine...just didn't go into overdrive.
Over the weekend I was driving it and the ABS light came on as well as the brake light - I pressed in on the brake and it was very mushy as the peddle went almost to the floor.
I had presumed the overdirve problem might be a speed sensor. Would thte brake problem have anything to do with it also?? If not, what?

The problem could be in your differential. If the ABS traction ring has any defects in the teeth, the rear wheel speed sensor will stop registering and disable your ABS.
This may not resolve your transmission concern, but it may answer your ABS/Brake light problem.

Emergency Brake light and Anti-lock light show on the dashboard of my 1992 Dodge Dakota...thought it might be low brake fluid, but it looks ok. Just had new front brakes put on 2 months ago. What else...


well sounds like at this point you need to have the ABS system scanned for codes.generally, whenever those lights come on one or both it is an indication of a malfunction in the ABS sys.could just be a inexpensive sensor so dont panic yet...just get it scanned and go from there. hope this helped ley me know have a good day Darrell

Rpm's jump up 200-400 in overdrive and when doing over 55 mph hwy


The rpm variation you are noticing is the torque converter slipping in and out of lockup. Most likely the torque converter clutch is failing, you will most likely need a new converter, if it's got a bunch of miles on it I'd probably freshen up the clutches while I had it out.
