I have replaced the ABS wheel speed sensor and the light of abs and brake light still turns on when I go to a speed bump or other type of bumps on the road I dont know whay it could be. Also when I replaced the abs sensor I also replaced all 4 oxygen sensors.

Also When I'm driving my truck and braking during the stop light the car shuts off, this car is a manual transmission. When I'm slowing down and I'm on 3 gear and go to 2nd gear the car turns off. /. It's been doing this for a while but now the car turns off when I put the car on neutral and start braking the car turns off. I did replace all 4 oxygen sensors and ABS wheel speed sensor.

You have to scan for codes for abs problem, hard telling where it is unless it's scanned. You should also scan for codes and check fuel pressure for engine problem as well.

It cold be the wire leading to the sensor that is bad or a wiring issue or rust on the wheel where the sensor picks up it's signal. Also have you checked your fuel pressure? Have you tried cleaning throttle plate and iac hole with choke cleaner?

I will also check that cable, is the abs wheel speed sensor and the transmission speed sensor the same part? Because I check Autozone web site and I searched the abs sensor which show the dorman 970-024 and I tried search for the transmission speed sensor and also show me the same part number as the abs sensor here are the links. Just wondering because my speed meter sometimes doesn't work. this is the abs link part http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Dorman-Vehicle-Transmission-Speed-Sensor/2001-Dodge-Dakota-2WD/_/N-jf9dqZ9gsum?itemIdentifier=442716_13921_20285_

this is the transmission speed sensor. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Dorman-Brake-Sensor-ABS/2001-Dodge-Dakota-2WD/_/N-jf9dqZ8koh2?itemIdentifier=442716_0_7151_

No they aren't the same sensor the abs sensors have very fine wires where the trans speed sensors don't. The one you show is for the rear axle differential here is apic of what normal ones look like.
