My first guess is that your VSS (vehicle speed sensor) is not working. This reports speed to ecu, tcu, and abs systems. Should be able to hookup a scan tool and find a code relating to it.

1996 Chevy K1500 4L60 Transmission having problems shifting speedometer is at Zero no movement and ABS light comes on.


The vehicle speed sensor is not working, it is located in the transmission tailshaft. The computer uses this speed info to shift the transmission, and tell when the rear wheels are locked up so the ABS will function.

ABS Light and Parking brake light on


sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is going out. it's the modern equivilent of a speedometer cable. it tells the computer how fast your going which the computer uses to determine shift points, abs function, and speedometer readings. they usually act up a bit before they go out. it confuses the computer. normally located in the extension housing at the rear of the transmission where the spedometer cable would be on an older vehicle

Speedometer stopped working and mileage has dashes in display


Replace your speed sensor. Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in the transmission, and when it goes it can cause irregular shift patterns, check engine light, abs light, ect. It's a simple fix, but the part is kind of expensive, generally between $75.00 and $100.00.

Abs brake light on wont shift until speedometer starts working


Could be your Speed sensor that would make the abs light come on because its not sensing the speed you are traveling. I have no Idea why when your gas gauge is on empty it won't shift. May be its the speed sensor and it was just happened to do it right when you where on empty. Does the speedometer work right or is it erratic? Let me Know this sound like and interesting problem I would like to work on and trouble shoot. Your ECM may be going too. There is so much going on Its hard to tell. But I would make sure the speed sensor is working properly first, Ok Talk at you soon. Thanks Bear001... Oh Yeah make sure all fluids are up and in good condition
