Hi, Welcome to the Forum,

As you already figured out the speed sensor and dome lite are on the same circuit.

You need to trace that circuit out to find your problem. Don't even bother to drive the truck for the trans shifting unless you find the cause of the no dome lite.

Try your local library for a wiring diagram.

Check every fuse on the truck no matter what it says it is for trust me it won't make sense but sometimes that is the cure.To much stuff is tied together these days.

in addition to that, you might also want to look for a broken sensor on the trans itself, or at least the wiring not intact near that. (use a good flashlight) this might have caused the fuse to blow.



and next time wash it yourself

Why are you changing parts?

The sensor is not your problem, have you tested it as bad?

Your problem is no power in the dome-speed sensor circuit. Find the cause and you will be good.

I have know of some one with you exact problem on a late '90's Ford truck. Speedo inop, trans erratic shifting and when this happens no dome light. Unfortunately I don't have the exact fix.

But they are all connected!

i never said to replace any sensors, i said to look with a flashlight for any obvious damage, from when it fell off the rack at the car wash. my 'thinking' was that the sensor might have cracked or the wiring got smashed and possibly blown the fuse.

ok,like i said I'm not the best at wireing maybe if it was a Harley i'd be ok.I didn't test the sensor's(rear&trans case) but it's original equipment truck has 104,000 on it so for 20 bucks i thought it would be worth it to change them.working on the fuses have to pick up the rest today.Have rehearsal with my band today at 5p so limited to time to work on my truck.
Iwill check the feed to the sensor under the dash and see if I can find anything there.I realy want to thankyou guys for the input, it helps big time to know its not a job with a phone # price attached to it.keep you guys posted.Thanks again for the input.
