Any suggestions where to start poking around?
I just bought a 1999 Ram 2500 SLT. It is 4WD. 5.9 Cummins. Automatic.
The Brake and ABS light are stuck on. I haven't had much time to poke around with it and see whats going on. But was hoping this was maybe a common issue with these trucks and a simple fix.
PS - The power difference going from a 1992 F350 7.3 IDI to a 99' Cummins with Hypertech, Cold Air, and 5" Stack is UNREAL...
Check the hub bearing for play... grab the wheel top and bottom, try to move it back and forth. You're looking for no movement.
Sounds like one of the sensors is toast. The front sensors are located on the hub. You just have to take the wheel, caliper and rotor off to get to it. I believe a 6mm allen is what you need to take it out.
They're about $60 to replace or if you have to replace the hubs, they come with it.
The rear is on the diff.
