Whatever it is will be ABS related. Get the codes and we can go from there. Speed sensors are the most common failure, but it could be teh CAB or HCU.

Well, I haven't had time to check the truck out, but when I got in it today to run an errand the speedo and odometer were not working. A couple of responses suggested the speed sensor. Is there anything else that might cause it that I should check before I replace the sensor?

I'd at least get the codes pulled first, but it's sure looking like a VSS or wiring issue. IF you have time, take a look under the truck near the rear of the trans and see if maybe it came unplugged.

just thought i'd throw this in there.i had a problem with the e brake pedal too i'd go to release it and it would go up all the way(i assumed) but my ebrake light still stayed on,what i found out is if i wiggled the ebrake pedal side to side and pull up it would go up a bit more and the light will go out. there seems to be a sticky part or something that prevents it going all the way up

Rammy, that's likely just wear and tear causing that. The pedal is riveted to the bracket and over time it will get some play in it. You can try tinkering with the switch on the pedal assembly to see if you can adjust it.

Family in for Christmas have all gone now and I finally got back to my truck. I replaced the speed sensor and that took care of the ABS and Brake light. The check engine light had come on and was still on after the sensor replacement. I went to the Zone and they checked the codes, 0500, charging system code. When I started it back up the code was clear and seems fine now. The volt meter shows good. I guess the issues have been taken care of. Also, my FSM I ordered from a guy on Craigslist arrived today! On to the next project!
Thanks to all for your help. I had no idea where to look and ya'll sent me directly to the problem.

I am not so lucky I replaced my speed sensor to today that is in the tranny. Following this post... My speedometer has got to where it wont work untill above 30 and the abs and the brake light are on in the dash. Traced all wiring that is away from the main loom and all looks good. Check engine light has not come on at all. I guess I will replace the speed sensor in the rear end and see what that does. Any sugestions????

Yeah, pull the codes from the ABS module first.

i did the exact same thing. replace the sensor in the rear diff. it is really easy and cheap. it is on the top of the diff and only has one 10mm bolt holding it in so you don't have to worry about draining your fluid or anything like that. just be careful putting the new one in..you might have to take a rag and tap it with a rubber hammer LIGHTLY to get the o ring to seal. i did that and it was good to go. literally i had the exact same thing happen to me. no lie.
