I have a 1995 diesel, 6.5 diesel turbo. Abs light is on, and trans will not shift. The truck does need a brake job also. I can't find a 1995 0bd1 code meter for a diesel.

If I do a brake job. Do you this the abs will start working again or should I change the speed sensor.

I really want to get a meter. Code meter for 1995 diesel. To check codes. Please HELP

You don't need a scanner. Jump the A and B terminals on the OBD plug and you can get the codes from the check engine light.

As far as the brakes, new brakes won't eliminate a ABS light. It most likely is an issue with a sensor. As far as the trans not shifting, that is a different issue. Is the speedo working?

I don't know how to check this. Or were it is located. The speed sensor.

Can you recommend a code meter for a 1995 Chevy diesel obd1.

Thank you again.

OTC code meters, can't find a web site for the co. They say, they might have one that does OBD 1 and for a 1995 diesel. If you can recommend a code meter please do.

I called the co. They say the 3822 will read codes. For a 1995 diesel.6.5 turbo.

I think I will first change the seed censor and see if corrects the problem.

The OTC 3822 cost 799.00 From Milex.

Let you know how I make out.

John:

That is a lot of money. I wouldn't spend it if you don't plan to keep the vehicle for a long time. You could pay someone to do it many times for you for a lot less.

Ok, changed the speed sensor and been driving the truck. Everything was good till tonight. SBS light came on, and truck would not shift, turned the key on and off 4 times and abs light went off and truck shifted.

I do have found it, while changing VSS, a small antifreeze leak on a line going to the trans.

Truck drove good after VSS for one day. Please advise again.
