ABS Module communication errors

I had a code pop up, something about ABS module communication error, and also something about CAN BUS.

My truck started chiming, and the speedometer was jumping all over the place. The traction control kept turning of and on. It did it twice in a row after restarts, then finally quit and threw those two engine codes. Anybody have a similar problem? The fix?

It sounds similar to a failing speed sensor in the rear diff on the 6.0

Symptoms point to bad VSS (vehicle speed sensor) in rear end.

This sensor controls speedometer, abs, traction control etc. Could be bad sensor or faulty connection.

I have replaced this sensor on OBS 7.3L powerstrokes but haven't heard of any on the 6.7L going bad yet. Take to dealer.

Check this out.
Here is the sensor and wiring harness.

But you should only need sensor

I've read anywhere from chaffed wires, to water in he plug, to people pulling and cleaning the sensor as cheap fixes before replacing it
