ABS Question

Hey All, I have a 99.5 7.3 PSD This weekend while driving down the road the ABS light came on and at speeds under 45 mph, I lose my speedometer???Only other thing I noticed was the O/D light flashes on the shifter, but tranny shifts fine. I have had the truck a year and a half, no probelms till now when I bought the truck I installed a bullydog 4 bank 6 pos. chip, gauge package for the A pillar and K&N cool air intake. Wondered if anyone had any ideas what might be going on. Thanks for any help!

ABS Sensor on your rear differential is BAD. This is a SIMPLE and EASY fix. Goto your nearest autozone (cheapest price on this item) and buy the sensor. It will cost you a total whoping $15.00 (tax included). NOW. go to the rear differential and on top you will see it with a wire going to it. Clean off the hole that the old sensor goes in and grease up the O-rings on the new sensor. I believe its a 3/4 American Wrench. Ford has yet to move to Metric bolts on their rear diffs lol. cheap bastardos

I have pictures and better instructions and part numbers, but they are all in my truck bc i am working on the front right sensor.

(02) F250 Powerstroke Crew Cab 8ft Bed.
(85) F150 The good old days
(78) Chevy 1500. This is my mudder. It has dual glass packed exhaust, 6" lift, 35" Swampers, painted red white and blue with stars and stripes, push bar and snow plow, and a complementary boombox.
