Default ABS, Brake Warning and Check Engine

I have a ABS, Brake Warning and Check Engine light that are all coming on. I am not sure what it is but The ABS and Brake light come on when I start the Truck. They then dim but stay on. I recently got the check engine light on. The ABS and Brake light will go out completely and then come back on. The guy i bought it from told me that it only does it when the weather is hot. I have only had the truck for about 5 days. I was wondering if it could be the rear ABS Vehicle speed sensor. Any trouble shooting would be helpful. Also anyone recommend shocks. I think my origanal Factory shock are probably done.

Thanks,
Nash

Nobody has anything for me. Man I am racking my brain and wrenches and cant figure anything out. I am waiting on the Rear VSS to see if that might be it.

Thanks,

Nash, I feel so bad. I won't lie....I could only take guesses. I don't know if your truck has the "3 turn key dance" that many refer to. It will display the codes. Then if you bring the codes to us, we can assess what each code means. Hang tight and we'll see if we can get someone to jump on this!

Thanks all. Yeah i have checked the Fuses and relays (does not seem to be any relays though). Fluid levels are good. I have just read about the 3 lights then it goes to the speedomoter and odometer not working. But it all leads back to the ABS VSS on the rear Diff. Hopefully replacing this will fix it we will see in a couple of days.

No I have not pulled any codes. I took it to a brake shop about a week ago. They were telling me they could not read any codes at all. The guy I bought it from took it to the dealership and head it checked out and the dealership could not figure out what it wrong with it. I am not sure but I dont like all those lights on even though the Check Engine, Brake and ABS light have been off for almost 24 hours.

I took it to Precision tune and they could not even read any codes. I am going to take it to a dealership and let them read it. Hopefully that will work. By the way my ABS and Brake warning light are back on but dimmed. The check engine light is still off and holding for now.
