check your fuses or rear wheel speed sensor. they are relatively cheap.

There is a speed sensor on the transfer case or the transmission. I don't remember exactly where but it is located on one of those two.

There is a sensor on the rear axle. But there is another one that is either on the transmission or the transfer case. I don't remember exactly where. But I do know that there is two sensors and the one is deffinately located on the rear axle differential housing.

Sorry for confusing you.

What other stuff is not working? Is the ABS light on? Is the OD light on the shifter flashing? Does it shift normal?

ABS light is on. Its a 6 speed so it shifts fine.

HaHa...It is not a 6 speed. It is a "Bolt Action".

I believe it is the VSS on the rear axle. $26 from the dealer. It only requires a 10mm wrench. I had one go on my truck last November.

ive had the same problem on an old truck, it was the speed sensor. very easily changed and was by far the cheapest fix.
