Why will the abs light stay off when starting a 2000 Ford Expedition if the brake is depressed but turns on and stays on when pedal is released?

You'll need to have a brake shop or the dealer read the ABS computer codes. You can't use a commercially available code scanner for ABS codes since they are not yet available to the public. answer u just need to have a mechanic fix the brake problem before brakes fail the light comes on as a system check when starting, if it stays on, their is a problem in your brake system.

A dashboard light appearing when brake pedal is depressed usually means brake fluid is low.

The brake pedal has a hinge or pivot pin, give it a shot of lubricant,should stop squeaking.

THE BRAKE LIGHT IS LOCATED BELOW THE DASH. LOCATE THE ARM HOLDING THE BRAKE PEDAL AND YOU WILL SEE A SWITCH THAT COMES OUT WHEN THE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED TURNING THE LIGHT ON. WHEN THE BRAKE IS RELEASED THE SWITCH DEPRESSES AGAIN TURNING THE LIGHT OFF.

vacuum pump helps the brake system to function well when pedal is fully depressed and released.

check the brake pedal, there is a switch on the back of the pedal that depressed when the brake is depressed that turns the lights on, when this is loose it keeps the lights on.
