Question: speedometer dead!

Hi there,

I have an '05 Mazda 3, 2.3L sedan. Recently I had both front wheel bearings replaced. The day after I had the second one replaced (replaced 3 weeks apart), I was looking at a christmas tree of lights on my dash board. For quite sometime before this my engine light had come on. After replacing the first wheel bearing (before replacing the second) my ABS light had come on. The day after replacing the second one, my spedometer died, my steering light came on, and my ebrake light came on. My odometer no longer works either but the RPM guage still works. Upon starting my car, the engine and ABS light areon immediately, the steering light and ebrake light only come on after i begin to drive (over 10 kph I figure). I assume it's the speed sensor, but not entirely sure. I don't have a reader capable of reading the ABS signaland don't want to pay $80 to have a hand held device plugged into m car. From what I've provided are you able to confirm this or provide me with another possibility?

Thanks for your help!

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
