Replace the speed sensor at the transmission this sends the signal to the transmision computer control module and is most likely the cause of the malfunction.

1999 4x4 dodge ram abs light &brake light has been on about a week. brake fluid &brakes are good. any suggestions


If you lose the speedometer, replace the rear differential speed sensor on top. If the speedo is ok, then it's your ABS pump/solenoid unit in the engine compartment left rear side. Most of the 99's have only the rear ABS, not front so don't look at the front brakes for the issue.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup, ABS & brake indicator


These are extremely complex systems and more likley than not, there is nothing wrong with the abs system. If you don't feel a pulsing force against your braking foot pedal, than you've got nothing to worry about than getting the dealer to clear the code in the abs control box. Again, if you feel NO changes in your braking system what probably happened is when you hit the bump/pothole one of your wheels went slightly faster than the one opposite it and the abs kicked in for a split second therefore storing a code.

Erratic speedometer with ABS and brakelight lit


same problem here, found 3 places that say it is the abs sensor:

Had this problem with my 1999 Ram 1500. There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. That sensor went bad and replacing it took care of the problem. What caused mine to go bad was apperantly water got into the differential when launching and loading my boat. check to see if gear lube needs to be replaced also.
The answer above is perfectly correct. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins. Good Luck!

The fix for your truck is the ABS speed sensor located in the top of the differential housing , held in with one stud . Your speedometer is calculated through the ABS controller. Replacing that sensor will fix your problem.
