There is a sensor located on top of the rear axle.If it is unplugged it could cause your concern,but the abs lamp would also be on.

The sensor the ford expert described that is on the rear axle, sends a signal to the PSOM in the back of the cluster. The psom takes the signal from that rear sensor and converts it to a speed readout, and also controls the shift points on the transmission.

There could be some gunk in your rear end interfering with that sensor- inside the rear end is an exciter ring that rotates with the axle and sends the speed signal to the sensor.

1995 ford e150 econoline van abs light flashing odometer doesn't work speedometer doesn't work brake lights don't work with van running shifter won't move out of park

hello,the predominant reason why all the defect\'s that you explain,that are prevalent on your vehicle are, (1)the abs system controls more than the anti skidding element,as various signals are processed through the main computer and then the correct information is sent to the \'actuator\'s, ie; the rotational speed of the wheels to make the speedometer,and subsequently the odometer display correctly,your problems may only be a simple remedy as a brake light switch,or a fuse,or often a dirty wheel speed do need to get a local auto technician to \'scan\' the vehicles various computers for any fault codes,and do additional live data checks to see if the various wheel speed sensors are in fact transmitting the signals to the \'modulator/abs computer,check all fusible links,also asess the conditions of the multi plugs and wiring harnesses ,as well as the main relay\'s,as \'oxidization\' builds up rapidly,especially on older vehicles,impeding the flow of signals/current/voltage.hope that helps, regards.

The sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transmission and should not be affected by the work that you did. Are the ABS sensors ok?

The ABS is your brake system and that is probably why it wound shift into gear, because your brakes don't work

Check ABS tone rings and sensors at wheels. Speedometer may be using these signal too. Visually verify rings (look like gears around axles) are intact with all teeth and sensors are at rings with connector attached. Troubleshooting the ABS system is beyond my skill level. If no joy on visual inspection, maybe one of the other experts can chime in on troubleshooting ABS.

2000 ford windstar speedometer does not work and abs light is on

For the abs light it needs to be scanned to see which sensor is not working.
Try to clean the sensor first if it doesn't help it need to be replaced.

If it has antilock brakes, the sensor is on the top of the rear differential. This sensor usually drives the speedometer. check the sensor for an open in its windings and also the wire that connects to it for any breaks.

the tell tail is on the hub and drum. a sensor at each location. you will see the one that is bad. it will be burnt. the speedometer does not have anything to do with it. it is a separate problem. most cause of speedometer problem is at transmission.
