ABS Light on and Speedometer Quit working?

My ABS light came on and my parking brake light as well
Also my Speedometer Quit working all at the same time what happened???
I drive a 1998 Dodge Dakota 5.2L 4x4 5speed manual

Replace the speed sensor located on the top of the rear differential.

Sounds more like it’s the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) in the transmission.

Definitely the speed sensor on top of the differential. Had a 99 Dakota with the same problem and that was it.
