Usually by changing the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) located in the rear axle "pumpkin". You might also need to check the rear gear tone ring to make sure it is OK if that doesn't fix it. Cheers!

Sometimes cleaning the vss will also get you by, but swapping it is recommended

I changed the VSS but no luck and the gear tone ring looks fine. Is there some sort of a electronic deal inside the instrument panel that could have dust or something thats not allowing a true signal from the VSS?

Yes, the PSOM is behind the speedometer, and if you're sure the VSS and tone ring are fine, the PSOM is next on the suspect list.

Does your cruise control work?

And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.

Okay so I pulled everything and rolled the gear ring the tone ring in my diff looks like the one I just bought brand new. No teeth are shorter and theres definitely none missing and no cracks. i did however screw up and buy a napa sensor whereas i shoulda known better so possibly it was a bad sensor to begin with? any help is appreciated.
