Default Speed sensors Really need help!

Ok I have a 2000 dodge ram 5.2 and the other day my speedo stoped working and also the odomoter went out. Then the check engine light came on and also the abs light came on as well.I was told it was the rear speed sensor on top of the diff that went out so I changed it and nothing was diffrent. Then I was told it was the speed sensor right by the transfer case it was out bound speed sensor or something like that so I changed it and still nothing. My breaks work fine. I dont know what else to do. Is there something simple that I am missing? Please help

And that's the only code in any of the modules? It could be the sensor, wiring, ABS module, PCM...difficult to say without diagnosing it.

Sure, but they won't be the problem.

So do you think it might be a computer problem?

I had to replace mine too for the same issue - I replaced the one on the rear end. Disconnected the negative side of the battery for 15 min. Hooked up new sensor and rehooked up negative side and worked like a champ. Hope this helps.....
