There's no signal from rear left sensor like suspected. Unfortunately this doesn't give us any more info. Diagnostics alone can't isolate if the sensor is dead, wiring from sensor to module broken or module internal wiring broken.

yes. Also, this is the replacement Left Rear sensor, right? Since putting this one in, it caused even more problems, right?

Is it possible to swap sensors / connectors left to right to see if the live data + error code moves with it?

Yes it is the new replacement sensor, but it did not cause even more problems. Same problem as before I replaced.

I will try to swap them over next weekend when im off work.

Rear sensor is the same. I would put right to left and old left info right (very good chance that part is not defective). I would use one of the old sensors to make a jumper thar can cross wire left wiring into right wheel & vice versa.

One thing i forgot to mention is the MPG gauge on the cluster also stops working at the same time, however the tachometer, fuel gauge and temp gauge continue to work. Does this help anyone with the diagnosis?

Same old. You need speed signal to calculate MPG.

There's your problem. The left rear wheel speed sensor isn't reporting the speed of the wheel. Check to see if the wheel is still attached to the truck.

The mpg gauge on mine did the same and it was a freaking short hitting the metal bar under the dash, caused by me rooting around looking for a switched power during installation of my stereo... don't know if that helps and if there's a point behind the cluster that would have a short that also knocks out the speed sensor

Maybe someone knows... Bueller, Bueller?

It could be the sensor as oem simenens VDO sensors are the only ones I would use...

Anytime I had to replace the wheel sensor the plastic connector from the harness to the new sensor had to be replaced also. The wire had to be in the correct location on the new connector, you can't have them switch around. If you replaced the plastic connector did you put the wire back in the correct location? You had a 50-50 chance of getting it right.
