The sensor on the rear end is a wheel speed sensor... used for RABS. rear anti lock brakes.

How are you getting speedometer functionality?

It controls nothing. Control is output, sensors are input. Sensor's don't control things.

It's an 88. The speedometer is cable driven, he took his speedo cable and put it back in the transfer case, BAM, speedo works.
