ABS/Speed sensor on the Pumpkin could be Bad?
I have a Scangauge that reads the MPH, and Fuel Rates, and calculates the MPG and the readings are much to low. My trip today was 121 Miles and the reader indicated 87 Miles. The MPG always drops to 0 and now stays there longer. I have concluded that the sensor drops its reading for instances. Last fall I was getting the ABS light after the truck MPH Needle would drop. But now I dont get the drop and the light but the signal drops periodiclay. Is there a known problem with the connection.
I unplugged it and cleaned it, and added some support, and I feel it only got worst. Or should I get a new sensor.
I will look at it again tomorrow and see if I can improve the connection.
