Default ABS problems

So i just purchased a 96 ram about a week ago and its a pretty nice truck for what i got. Now when i was driving it i noticed the brakes in it were a little rough, so i got it up in the air and took a look at them. They checked out fine except for the drivers side caliper was seized up. so just yesterday i ran some new lines in it and today i just put on new calipers and pads in the front and bled them. The problem is my ABS light is on and it still hasnt gone off even after ive already done what was needed to the brakes. I dont know if theres another problem some where in the braking system that could be bad and i dont know if its even a common problem. Can someone tell me what i should look for?

Start by having the ABS module scanned and see what the codes are.

You need a scan tool that will pull ABS codes. A lot of off the shelf scan tools from parts stores only pull generic OBD II codes from the PCM.
