Another possibility seems to be the accessory delay relay. If that's the
culprit, then your power windows would also be failing intermittently.
I just replaced that relay on my '95 yesterday, and it's been working since
but that's only a couple of miles - too early to tell if it actually solved
But the relay is cheap and easy to replace (see the thread "power windows,
4WD lites - need relay" in this group), so you might just want to give it a
try before messing with the sensor.
Conversely, if you do learn more about the axle speed sensor, post what you
learn here, especially if you replace it and it solves the problem!

Which manual do you have? (The Chilton piece-o-junk for the '95 doesn't
show wiring diagrams for any of the accessories or auxiliary features, nor
does it show relay panel locations. It's utterly useless for any electrical
problem I've yet encountered.)
