Need help finding sensor connections

I'm looking for a couple of sensor connections that I need to seal up so they don't get wet when I drive down a street with lots of standing water. I've gotten three different false positives on...

One of my bucket list items is to go back to the town where I was stationed and spend some time in the area. I haven't had any good Jagerschnitzel since I left there, and there was one gasthaus that...

Proud to have served, and thank you! I can get along quite well in Germany, being as I learned to speak it from the locals and not from a schoolbook. Quite a bit different when you learn it...

Finally isolated my ABS light problem

I had posted a couple of times about my ABS/brake light coming on all the time, and my efforts to fix it. Replaced the RW speed sensor - no soap. Double checked all the connections, fluid level,...

I've been to every source I can identify, but apparently no one offers a reader that can pull ABS codes from a 98 Ram 1500. The Innova readers cannot do this.

The only place this can be done, so I...

After doing some research, apparently neither this scanner nor its stable-mates can pull ABS codes from a 98 Ram. It apparently CAN pull them from later models, but not my 98.

So back to square...

I'll yank the rear drums this weekend and have a look. I'd been planning to do that anyway just to look for signs of trouble.

Both the cylinders are fairly new - I replaced them within the past...

Seems to be the rear. I replaced the shoes and pads all around recently and I let it ride for a while thinking the self-adjusters would bring the rear ones up to where the light might go out.

Still getting the brake/ABS light

I had posted a couple of months ago about my brake/ABS light coming on, and the consensus was that my wheel speed sensor on the differential casing needed changing. Well, I changed it, but I'm still...

I'll double check that, and I'll also double check that I plugged it up good. ABS and Brake lights stay on constantly now.

RamTech, I replaced the battery after it kept wheezing and going TU on me. I could start the truck, but it wouldn't idle well if at all unless I would keep my foot on the accelerator. Die, start......

Coolant level is fine, no evidence of oil in it. The DTC comes and goes, and usually is set when the engine is idling, warm or cold, although it happens more in cool/cold weather. It's just weird...

Haven't done that. Long as I can manage around it, I'm inclined to leave well enough alone.

I'll do that. I've had a look down in the TB from time to time, but I don't recall ever having noticed any oil. I'll double check next time.

Thanks.

I probably need to go ahead and get a Group 27 battery. Advance Auto has one with 600 CCA, 750 cranking, 110 reserve. Sounds like the current draw on my vehicle is just more than a Group 24 battery...
