2007 dodge rm 1500 5.7 Brake and abs lights came on. I changed the rear abs/wheel

Make sure you brake fluid is topped off, then you need to get the ABS codes from the ABS computer, write them down and then come on back here and we will try to send you in the right direction with your problem.

Thanks. Part store read the code as rear wheel sensor. I changed it twice in case I got a bad part. Brake fluid level good.

OK now pull the ABS fuse or disconnect the battery negative cable to clear the codes from the system. If that was indeed your problem it should not return, if it does then you will have to start tracing the wiring for the sensor listed in the code.

Thanks for the heads up. Turned out to be a bad connection in the rear abs/speed sensor wire that was hidden under the fender well.
