Not likely. The ABS system and the vehicle speed sensor are two separate issues. the speed sensor is located on the transmission and usually accessed on the right side. based on your description of the vehicle stalling I would have to say the ABS problem is a vacum problem or faulty master cylinder. Check your vacum lines for leaks and damage, especially the one going to the master cylinder or brake booster. I recommend the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle for further information on the location and replacement of the speed sensor.

My speedometer and cruise control stopped working on my 2000 dodge durango I replaced engine speed sensor and that did not fix problem. Any suggestions?

What engine speed sensor ? Location ? The vehicle speed sensor signal comes from the anti-lock brake control module , to the PCM -engine control module . Speed Information to the instrument cluster comes from the PCM on the CCD serial data bus , Suggest you google Chrysler CCD data bus . Are any warning lights lit on the instrument cluster ? ABS , Check engine etc... Sorry but I suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to find the problem .

2000 dodge durango abs and brake ligth comes on after driving for a minute

The brake and abs light come on if a problem is detected. When the abs light is on the abs is NOT working. You need to pull the codes from the ecm to detect the problem

2000 dodge durango abs light is on and reads a code 72 on scaner?

Hi, there is a speed sensor causing your problem which is the one on the top of the rear differential. Its the one that runs the speedometer, picked up by the abs module. The abs is disabled if the light is on, your brakes will stayed locked if you start to slide.

I'd start with replacing the rear speed sensor and see what happens. This should bring your speedometer back if nothing else. If you still have the other code coming back you'll have to replace the abs control module. That code is a direct internal failure of the control module, no diagnostics required.

Abs light came on

When the abs light goes on on a 1996 to 2005 domestic vehicle, I would get my hands on a $99 or so OBD-II Brake scanner made by Actron. It will tell you which wheel speed sensor is not giving a signal to the module, or what subsection of the abs brake system is making the light turn on.

I got one from for about $114 delivered to my doorstep a few months ago to help diagnose a problem in a 1997 Cadillac Deville Limo I acquired.

Good luck on this repair.

Uncle put new brake pads on vehicle (he worked on front and back brakes) and now the speedometer doesn't work, the abs light is on, check engine light, and the break light is on. what could have happened ....

Check for disconnected ABS sensors. The front sensors in the front are located next to the axle shafts. The rear sensor is located on the rear differential housing itself on top, in the middle. The ABS is monitored by the computer for performance. The ABS kicks on when the vehicle comes from a certain speed to a dead stop, keeping the wheels from locking up. That could be the reason for the speedometer not working. Or it could be a bad speed sensor. Both can also trigger the check engine light because it is monitored by the computer. The brake light usually comes on due to low fluid level. It can trigger the light, but not be low enough to impact brake performance. I hope this helps.

My check engine light is on, my speedometer do not work, my ABS light and Brake light is on. My check engine, ABS and brake lights stay on all the time and my speedo does'nt work.

Speed sensor located in top of rear diff is probably bad, It sends a signal to abs module for abs, it also is used by pcm and cluster for vehicle speed.Sometimes rear diff mechanical problem can damage the sensor. Trans sensors have nothing to do with speedo or abs light.

Brake light and ABS light is on and the speedometer, odometer and tripometer are inoperable

replace the left front wheel hub assy. with 4 wheel abs. The spedometer works off of the left front wheel sensor. It will fix the abs/brake light and the spedometer will start working
