Unhappy Abs light is on, no speedo, check engine light is on, and trans. Acting strange!

I am having problems with my 99 Ranger XLT 3.0 the speedo doesn't work, ABS light is on, O/D light is flashing and the trans. is acting all weird shifting hard. I took it to autozone to have them read it and it came up vehicle speed sensor. I purchased the sensor that is on top of the rear diff and replaced it but that didn't seem to do anything. Does anybody know what it could possibly be? Is there another sensor that I don't know about? I'm pulling my hair out!!!

let me ask you this.. does your truck make a dinging sound when you leave the keys in the ignition and open the driver side door? This is completely related to your problem btw..

Checked all fuses! They are good. I did find a small cut in the wire right at the plug of the abs sensor. I spliced it back together and taped it but still isn't right.

Have you check the VSS on the trans (2WD)/t-case(4WD)?

Mine did all of that ...I found out it was the transmission sensor .
I only needed to re- cover the sensor back up with electrical tape,cuz it wore off.

Thanks MTman! Thanks for the help.

Where would the transmission sensor be and what would it look like?

Well, I fixed my problem! The wire that plugs into the ABS sensor was all corroded and no good. Went and found the plug and wires that plug into the sensor at a salvage yard and presto it worked. The check engine light is still on but I have my speedo back and transmission shifts correctly and the abs light went off. Thanks guys for all the info!

Glad to hear you got it back working. Fuse 11 on 2000 -2003 years controls the speedo and stops the odometer from turning when taken out.
