My 99 Ram 1500 has the same symptoms. Brake and ABS light on, and won't display the speed until 20+ MPH. Does anyone know the part # of the sensor for my truck's year and model? We don't have a dodge dealer where I moved, and the parts dept of the closest dealer (80 miles) is closed on the weekends. I found a sensor online, but I don't know if it's the right one. The part # is 5014787AA. Any help you guys can give me would be really appreciated!!!

I have a 99 SLT 4x4 5.2L
I have 98,990 miles on it now. When I was on a trip about 85,000 my ABS light, and brake light came on. as I got into town the spedo didn't work below 20 mph. gradually it got worse, at the end there was no spedo didn't work below 35/37 mph. Well I had used my scantool on the OBDII and got nothing. The dealer was looking at a rear brakeline recall, and the brakeline was fine. However while he had it there he scanned it for me and the result was a bad rear wheel speed sensor. I bought the sensor, changed it in the driveway in 10 minutes and all is right in the world agian. One thing I learned is the $150 scantool I bought is good, but not as good as the one at Dodge.

To all Concerned: I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota that had the ABS light and brake light on at the same time; also, my speedometer worked intermittently... and then not at all. This was diagnosed by a dealership as needing an ABS control module and a wheel sensor to the tune of about $850.00. I declined, did some research and discovered that a speed sensor (located on the top side of the rear differential - and very easily accessible) was the problem. It cost me about $42.00 at a dealership to purchase this part, and I replaced it myself in about 15 minutes. I dont have the part # in front of me to post now, but the part was called a speed sensor. Hope this helps.

FYI, If you ever have the brake and abs lights both come on DON'T have trouble with the speedometer, it could be your brake light switch failed. I learned this last week!

I have a 99 RAM 1500, no speedometer, brake light, check engine and ABS light were all on. I wen't to the local dodge dealer and the "Parts Specialist" said the tranny speed sensor was what I needed for the speedometer. He also said there was not a sensor on the diferential. he said that it was a rear wheel sensor and that it was on the wheel brake assembly. The tranny sensor turned off the check engine light. I returned to get the rear sensor and they were out of stock. The Chrystler dealer across the street had the part. I located the part to be replaced on the top of the differential (not on the brake assembly). All problems solved. The specialist was not much help. I don't think they like you if you won't pay thier labor fees.

I have the same problem as above. Brake and ABS lights on, Speedo doesnt work until 25mph. But added to that is a rubbing brake noise form the rear, the truck seems sluggish and gets poor gas mileage now. Almost like the parking brake is stuck on a little bit. I assume the poor gas mileage reading on my gauge has something to do with the speedo sensor, but I do alot of the same driving, and it seems like im using more gas lately. Anyone have a clue? or coule this be another issue not related to the Speedo Sensor. At any rate I'll have2 to get the sensor to see if the problems goes away.

I have a 2001, Dakota Quad Cab, with the ABS and Brake light on. Sounds like replacing the “rear speed sensor” should do the trick. My question is where does one find the rear speed sensor?

The only place I know of to buy a "rear wheel speed sensor" is a dealership. mine was $50, but most people seem to be getting there's for about $30 - $35. Hope this helps!

I have a 99' Dodge Dakota Sport 4x4 club cab in which the ABS and brake lights have been on for quite some time. The check engine light joined them shortly after. The speedometer was working after about 30 mph but now doesn't work at all. Autozone ran the diagnostics and told me I needed a speed sensor so I purchased and installed a speed sensor from Autozone but it didn't look anything like the one on top of the rear differential so I kept looking and found a sensor which matched my new sensor located on the tranny. I replaced this sensor with the new one and disconnected the negative lead on the battery for about 30 seconds. The check engine light is no longer on but the ABS and brake lights are still on and the speedometer still doesn't work. Any advice as to what I should do next?

Ok, the rear wheel speed sensor went out on my 98' Ram 1500. I replaced the sensor with one from the dealer for about $46 and took about 15 minutes to replace. The abs and brake lights all went off and now my speedometer works. But now when I go over 61-65 mph the abs and brake light comes back on. Could this just be a bad sensor? Also noticed that a clicking noise is heard when I push the brake pedal while braking. This was not happening till the rear wheel speed sensor went bad.

My abs light and brake light were on at the same time. I read the discussion board and went out and purchased a rear wheel speed sensor for $35. I installed it in about 20 minutes. The brake light went off, however, the abs light blinks on and off. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

I was traveling west on the interstate one rainy day, lo and behold, my '97 Dakota SLT got away from me and started into two 360's down into the medium. It was kind of a surprise, but when I stopped spinning, the rear end was just at the edge of the east-bound lane. Motor was still running and everything seemed intact, rain hadn't stopped for me either. The ABS & Brake light indicaters were on right after stopping. When I got to my destination I restored the problem by disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting after a few seconds. Everything so far works like it should. I won't say this will work in every situation but it could solve some, maybe..

I own a 2000 Ram 1500 that had the same problem, read the posts and found the rear speed sensor at the dealership for 32.00 Got home and replaced it in about 15 min.

HOW TO SWAP OUT THE REAR SPEED SENSOR

It's located on the top of the rear differential towards the front. Remove the 7/16 nut on first to pull off the clamp that holds some fluid lines down. Then I used a 14mm because thats all I had to remove the second nut (the second nut is actually attached to the threads as one peice to be unscrewed). Remove the metel retaining clip and unplug the sensor. To remove the sensor tap from the sides to get a flathead underneath and gently pry back and fourth. Be careful when installing the new sensor it is a very snug fit.

Hope this helps some of you out.

'99 5.2 - Same symptoms as everybody else. I tried the rear sensor fix myself, and it didn't work. I ended up taking it to the dealer after a tech at my local garage couldn't make sense of the codes my ABS module was throwing. The dealer determined that I needed a new ABS module. My old one couldn't be programmed correctly or store in memory the wheel size I'm running, etc., and it just kept throwing code after code. Cost of the new module installed was about $400. Just a warning... it might not be the rear diff sensor.
