Default Help! Code P0501 Speed Sensor/rear-end swap

OK, I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 2wd with the 5.7 Hemi. I kept having issues with the stock rear-end so I pulled it and swapped in a different rear-end since I was mainly drag racing it. I put in an 8.75" old school rear with 4.86 gears. I have had it in for almost a year now. Problem is the speed sensor runs off of the old (stock) rear-end and I cannot connect it to the 8.75" one. So the speed sensor (P0501) code comes on and therefore I cannot pass the DEQ to get new registration tags. So long story short, is there anyone out there that knows how I can somehow rig the sensor so the code does not come on or know of some aftermarket speed sensor that I can rig off of the transmission, driveline, rear wheels, or something? I have to get that code off. I know I can get another stock rear and put it in but the finances are tight and it looks like up to a $1300 project.

A tuner should be able to turn off the sensor control, reset the code and fix your problem, but you will need them to connect to your computer or you will need to have a tuner for the truck for them to send the code. HemiFeverTuning.com should be able to help you no problem.

I have a tuner and it will reset the code but not turn it off. So it keeps coming bak on all of the time. There must be some kind of bypass that someone knows about or an aftermarket system to read a speed sensor somewhere.......

sounds like you need something like a VSS relocation kit.

I don't see how you can fix this problem without swapping the rear end. Even if you could rig up a tone wheel and sensor to something like the drive shaft, you'd still set codes because the speed of the rear end has to match the speed of the front wheels or you'll get a rationality code for the rear sensor.

There is a sensor on the front wheels somewhere? I did not know that. Would I be able to tap into that sensor so the front and back are reading the same? Rather wire the back one into the front one somehow?

Maybe a VSS relocation kit is just an idea and not something you can actually buy for my vehicle? Because that would solve it all.

I don't know if the frequency would be the same at a given speed but even trying this could have disasterous results if you were to get into an ABS stop with the truck wired that way.
