Are you planning on visiting your dealer to get this light officially inspected? Send us a direct message as we'd be glad to help with that process.

I kept getting something similar (ABS and AWD errors) in my 2015 Chrysler 200 (similar safety tech used in the Rams as far as I know) and in the end my entire rear differential had to be replaced. Curious to see what it ends up being on the Ram.

One of my speed sensors is being changed as I type. I had 5 - 7 alarms including Service ABS, Service Trailer Break, Service steering adjusting headlights, and service Air suspension. My speedometer would not display my speed and Odometer was not registering miles. The power steering felt non-existent as well. Sure hope the sensor fixes all this.

Any official solution with the new speed sensor?

On a previous truck I had the same symptoms. All caused by a bad front driver side wheel hub bearing assembly. The front wheel hub design had the wheel speed sensor integral to it, so I couldn't replace one without the other.

I never knew if the sensor was bad, or if the bearing was starting to go and causing the sensor to go crazy. Either way, after the part swap everything was fixed. Given your mileage, likely culprit is the wheel speed sensor and not a bearing. Not sure if the two are mutually exclusive on a Ram, or if you'll have to replace the whole assembly like I had to (it was on a Chevy).

I was called from the dealer (not where I purchased the truck). I was told I needed a new speed sensor on a rear wheel and then a new ABS module. I was informed that the module is on back order and will not be available until June 30th. They are making these trucks everyday, but i have to wait for part that is on back order. Vehicle is marker as down so they are hoping it wont be as long as they were told. I am not saying anything negative about the dealer. They are treating me very well and much better than I would have thought. They drive 20 mile one way to pick up my truck and work on it. They have even given me a 2018 Jeep Wrangler as a loaner.
