Default ABS and brake light

I have a 96 5.2l that has a brake light and an abs light. Any ideas on what it could be. The brakes were completely changed and the lights are still on. When I mean everything was changed I mean: pads, rotors, front rubber lines, calipers, shoes, and drums. And also the emergency brake cable. I'm assuming the issue is with the abs which i don't know what could be wrong. Any help would be great. Thanks.

What about your brake fluid level? If it's low it will throw those lights as well.

If you have rear wheel ABS only the sensor in the center of the rear end is probably bad, or a wire could be broke going to it. Should be able to scan it and get a code. An ABS problem will turn on the brake and abs lights.

Thanks for the responses. The fluid level is fine. I leaning towards the abs sensor for the rear. The rears have been locking up in the crappy weather. Thanks again.

The ABS and Brake Light stays on. At first, it was intermittent, now is steady. The code pointed to the right front speed sensor. Changed that, but did not solve the problem. The manual says to pull the front axle and inspect the toner ring. Am not comfortable doing that, seems like it would initiate more problems. Any other ideas?
