sensors rarely go out i'd try first check brake fluid top it off this can cause brake light to come on if full check your brake pads and rotors you got to take your tires off any rust will set off the brake light inside your truck if they are fine then you should get your ball joints and tie rod ends checked out by a pro

The ABS light may or may not be lighting due to a faulty sensor. If it is, and it is common to happen, you need to find out which one. Take it to an independent repair shop and they will need to troubleshoot it.

I have the same problem on my Econoline 96, I've taken it to a dealer and several independent shops with no solution. My econoline does this mostly in the summer, and not during the cool days or winter.

Check to see if the fixture has a sensitivity setting or switch. Perhaps it needs to be adjusted or set correctly? I'm looking for the proper settings for mine now. Here is THE ANSWER: The photo cell that senses light and darkness is sensing the light coming from the fixture being controlled. Reposition the sensor away from the light of the fixture.
