    I changed the VSS and it didn't help, maybe the wiring. I'll get it scanned.
    do you know what else it could be?
    thank you.

Have the system scanned for fault codes, I think you may have a defective VSS (vehicle speed sensor), but don't replace it before you have the fault code test run, a defective computer and or wiring to the VSS can also cause the same problems.

1999 Dodge Ram ?electrical problem?


Sounds like your speed sensor on the rear end. Could just be a loose connection check the harness is securely pluged into to sensor. I know on my 02 ram I have abs sensors that go in to my hub bearings, if you have this that could also be your problem. when i installed my new hubs I bent the tab on the connector to far and my light came on and off during driving. I had to tap down my connector.

Speedometer will not work and abs and parking brake light are on.


Have you had the abs scanned? It is likely the speed sensor in the rear differential. It is a common problem on these.

You must have ripped the wires off underneath your truck, and you probably don't have brake lights anymore either. Better get somebody to repair it as soon as you can.
