All I can think of is that the speed sensor on the transmission output shaft has become disconnected. Without the ABS system able to know what the output shaft speed is it will disable itself as it needs a reference to determine when a wheel is spinning or locking up. Fix the speed sensor problem and the ABS problem will fall back into line. It might take s little while for the ECU to reset the warning light so if you are in a hurry disconnect the battery negative lead for 5 minutes and this should clear the recorded error.

Some vehicles speedometer works off the ABS wheel sensors. Have the codes checked for the ABS system. Check the fuses for the ABS also.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

ABS Fault? Renault Megane


Hi Liz, I am in exacty the same position as you although I just had the new abs pump fitted and I still have the same problems??? I am going crazy with this, my garage's diagnostic machine won't commuicate with my car and my speedo is not working? My mechanic reckons the abs memory is stuck in a loop and that is why the lights ain't going out, but without a diagnostic I dont know, I guess I will have to take it to a dealership to be ripped off!!!!

2000 chevy 1500 4 wheel drive electronic shift runs fine then speedo starts to go erratic then stops working then the brake warning light comes on then the abs light comes on then the transmission shifts...


Check your battery terminal connections. Because so much of these trucks are computer controlled a bad connection at the battery will cause alot of electrical bugs. I had to replace my transmission about a year ago. Just prior to having that done my speedo was going crazy at times. The brake warning light usually means you have one or more calipers that need to be replaced. Start with the battery terminal connections.

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.

Speedo and abs light on bmw 5 series


hello , it sounds like you have a bad speed sensor or all 4 of them , see when the speedo plays dead like that is because (most cases ) the sensors at the wheels are bad due to water and normal driving corrosion , the data for the speedo comes from the abs module that monitors the sensors if the abs does not reed it the speedo will not reed it aswell , it will be good to scan the vehicle to see if you need more than 1 sensor there is one in each tire axel ,good luck
