No speedometer. Not shifting right. 97 ram 1500. Without abs and I changed all 3 speed sensors

Hello and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.

Are you saying the vehicle came from the factory without ABS or are you saying that the factory ABS has been removed from the vehicle?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

Please explain

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It does not have front abs there is no abs control box

Does it have rear ABS?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I assume because I changed that speed sensor

Ok, excellent.

Do you have a scanner that can read live data?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It did have po0050 code and brake light on. But not noe
Customer: replied 2 months ago.

Can it be ecm

Sure it could be, but most likely it is a wiring issue between the sensor and computer.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok let me ask you this. Is the gear suppose to just pull off on transfer case output speed sensor ?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
What role does it play with everything?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I don't have good service here
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it's extra charge for that

No worries, I hear that from everyone. :)

I guess I don't understand your question.

Please explain

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The output shaft speed sensor on transfer case. It's like a 2 peice deal. One part with sensor and other goes in transfer case with gear on it. Does the gear just ride no keepers on it? I took that other part out of transfer and gear just fell off. I slid back on put back together

YES sir that is correct. It is supposed to spin and allow the sensor to produce a signal while the vehicle is in motion.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I know it suppose to spin just wondered about it come off I had pull it out transfer when I removed other part.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
you r satisfied that it's in wiring between the rear axle speed sensor and computer? What about this speedometer fuse I keep hearing about I can't find

There is no fuse sir. I am looking at a wiring diagram of this circuit now. :)

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok the cruise won't work either if that means anything

The cruise wont work if the vehicle speed signal does not reach the computer. :)

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Hmmm. Then I got definant wire issue maybe a ground ? The tps doesn't affect speedo or shifting does it?

It can affect the shifting, but not the speedo.

I am glad I can help!

wire or computer
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I mean one or other is what you r saying

I cant say without looking at it myself sir. :) I am not there doing the testing.

Again, it is usually just a broken wire causing this condition based on my experience.
