Success Story Re: !!HELP!! Speedometer in 99 Ranger not working...
Thanks to all for the solution--it worked great for me. I'm registering just to report my success.
My 99 Ranger 3.0 RWD with 91K miles showed the same symptoms--speedometer stopped working, "ABS" & "OD off" & "Check Engine" lights lit, transmission shifted rough and at wrong speeds. I got the Vehicle Speed Sensor from AutoZone for $18, replaced it on the top center of the rear diff housing, and my life is jelly.
WD-40 and patient wiggling got the old sensor out. The only snag was getting the wiring connector reattached--until I realized I had *both* the new and old blue plastic gaskets in there. Oops! With one it clicked on like it should.
Again, thanks to all--you solved my problem.
