ABS Speed Sensor

Ok I need some help, I just bought a 2006 F250, drove it over 1500miles and then the ABS light comes on go to the shop and they tell me its the ABS speed sensor. I have someone then tell me it could be a short in the system. I have continued to drive it then last night the speedometer started going all goofy on me and is now locked in place at 60mph. Is this something that a shade tree screw up can fix or should I take it someplace to have it done professionally? Any advice on this would be great. I have driven Powerstrokes for 14 years at work and have never seen anything like this, but honestly I never have worked on them fleet took care of maintencence.

Thanks

Joe

The VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) in the rear diff. needs replaced. Easy fix

FIRST, check the ground up by the driver's side headlight

It took 5 weeks to figure that out...
