Having problems with your 1998 Dodge Dakota ?

ABS Problems My ABS light and Brake light are on and the Speedo works intermittantly, above 30 miles an hour. What would be the most likely culprit? Powertrain Control Module or the Speed sensor?? The ABS circut routes through both, or they run to it. The brakes themselves are new on the rear and fairly new on the front Thanks, Gary

\015\012 Just went through this problem with my Dakota as well. This is a very very very common problem with the Dodges. First things first. Replace the Vehicle Speed Sensor on the rear differential. Cost around 40 dollars at your local auto parts store or even from the stealership. Its easy to change as well one nut and off comes the bracket then the stud comes off and then you can take out the sensor. They big key is here to be VERY careful pulling out the sensor or you will break it off in the housing. You will need to slowly turn and pry it out with a small screwdriver (as there is an Oring holding it in). Reverse the process to install the new one. After you get the sensor in, reset everything by pulling the negative off the battery and leaving it off for 30 min (some require less time but 30 min is safe) to ensure all is reset. Hope this helps you.
