Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
1998 dodge Dakota
Ok so I just got this truck and when I got it the abs light and brake light were on plus the speedo doesn't work sometimes I replaced the rear speed sense on the diff but the lights are still on and Speedo still isn't working. I just finished up with it and only drove it around the block. So my question is would the Speedo start working right off the bat or does it have to reset?
If the red brake light and the ABS light are both lit up on the dashboard, do NOT drive the vehicle. It indicates a major malfuntion with the brake system. The red light indicates low brake fluid or the parking brake engaged. The yellow ABS without the red light, indicates a problem the computer found and it disables the ABS system while still having conventional brakes. Since both are lit, it needs the brake system repaired. What you replaced on the rear diff was probably the rear ABS sensor. The vehicle speed sensor for the speedometer should be located on the rear of your transfer case if you have 4WD, or on the rear of the trans if you have 2WD.
