Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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

cool and come back on within a few miles driving.

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.

The number of sensors depends on type of ABS your vehicle has. My 2007 Ram1500 has 2. 1 rear center of pumpkin and 1 front drivers. This is a 4 wheel drive with 2 wheel rear antilock braking. Took about 2 months to get dealers to look at actual ABS pump to verify. Run VIN. and look for manufacturing specs. If under brakes you see 4wrral then rear only 2 sensor. If you see 4wal then 3 to 4 depending on build. Easiest to look at pump. 1 in 2 out..2 wheel. 1 to 2 in and 3 to 4 out 4 wheel. Next actually look for wire running with brake line at each wheel. On my truck the factory had actually installed a sensor in front passenger hub but cut off wire at sensor. This just to plug hole. Got my thinking all messed up. Run vin. Look for free vin check affiliated with the state or fed gov. Gives more detail for free than other sites. Else take vin to a dealer. Ask for manufacturing build sheet.
