This happened to me and a lot of other people on here. Most of the time it was the sensor or wiring on the rear axle. I hit my sensor and moved all the wires around a couple of times, then cleaned them and the warning lights eventually went out.
Most likely you will have to replace the sensor. Pull the sensor out and test it first. If it's OK, then test to see if its getting a singal too or from the computer.

My ABS and Air Bag light comes on almost everyother time I start my Ram. I just give my dash a good smack and it seems to do the trick.

Don't be alarmed. This just happened to me last week (same kind of truck too). Ended up being the ABS sensor on top of the rear differential was the culprit. New part from Dodge was $42.47 and took me all of 10 minutes to replace it. I also had no speedo till about 30MPH and then the needle would jump to the current speed. The sensor cured all the problems instantly.
Good luck!!
