    Good day all. I have a 2000 ram 2500 with the 8L V10. Starting yesterday after driving to work (about 15 miles) the brake light and ABS light came on. No change in the pedal. Always feels a bit soft and have bled them several times. Then the spedo dropped to 0 MPH and the tranny acted like it was in neutral. Made it to work and when leaving and going to my other job about 25-30 miles away, no light and no tranny issue. This morning in my way home same issues lights on and tranny seemed like it was in neutral and spedo at 0 MPH. Any ideas would be great. Truck has 210K on it and the tranny has 2500 miles on it. Thanks[​IMG]

    Speed sensor will often cause all of this. Located in the top of the rear diff

    It was in fact the speed sensor. Thank you!
