It does not have front abs there is no abs control box

Does it have rear ABS?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago

Ok, excellent.

Do you have a scanner that can read live data?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago

Can it be ecm

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

Ok let me ask you this. Is the gear suppose to just pull off on transfer case output speed sensor ?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What role does it play with everything?

I don't have good service here
Customer reply replied 11 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

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 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.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 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 reply replied 11 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. :)

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 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. :)

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 11 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.

wire or computer
Customer reply replied 11 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.
