i have a 98 durango 5.9 4x4 ive issues with the abs and brake light popping up off and on it is now happening more frequently especially when its raining, recently i replaced my abs module, calipers,pads, brake hoses and rotors the light discontinued popping up for about a week or so but its at it again and doesnt want to go away. before i replaced rotors brakes etc. i had an issue with my front passenger wheel rolling a little bit of white smoke out it heated up the rotors and everything else pretty good i think it may have caused the abs wheel speed sensor to start malifunctioning, i would appreciate any opinions or in put if possible
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.
Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.
If you backup lights are not working as well, I would say check the fuse for the backup lights, if the fuse is good, see if you are getting power to that fuse. We had this problem and after weeks of searching and changing sensors, we found the backup light fuse was good, but not getting power. Ran a wire from that fuse to the cig. lighter fuse and all woprksf great.
Front, remove the hold down clip, should be a 7mm or a 45 torx bit to get the slider pins out. If you are not sure what you are doing, please spend a little money and have a pro do it for your safety, and the safety of others around you.
