The speedometer in my 1999 dakota does not start to register until I reach about 45mph. Is this computer controlled, or is there a sensor in the trans?

Probably the speed sensor in the rear differential. Mine did something similar, except it wouldn't register until about 20mph.

Gentelman,
Yuo were both right and I thank you for steering me in the right direction. I replaced the sensor and the speedo works fine now. Also the ABS dash light finally went out as I found that the wheel speed sent to the ABS unit comes from the same sensor.
Thanks again, HACK

My speed sensor in the trans went out. It scared me to death I thought I blew a rear end out.
