Don the common cause for this code to set is in most cases caused by a failing speed sensor, are you able to monitor the speed sensors on your scan toll to see if one is not reading or not reading correctly matching the other?

Where is speed sensor and how long does it take to change
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

Each wheel has its own speed sensor and in order to determine which one is at fault you need to connect your scan tool and monitor the signals from each. In most cases the suspect sensor will usually be the one that is not reading on the scanner. It dose not take long to change any one of the four as long as you can determine which one is at fault.

Would that make car not shift from 2nd to third
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

Normally not, this code would in most cases only effect the ABS system and not the transmission. The transmission shift issue is most likely a separate concern.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
