ABS Light

I am working on re-painting my truck. I took the bed off because its pretty damaged so I'll need a new one. Nothing was hooked up to the bed. I raised it 3 inches and then unplugged everything and dropped the filler necks.

I went straight to the wash bay and blew all of the mud and grime off of the frame and top of the fuel tanks. When I took the truck out for a test drive the ABS light comes on after 15 mph and I think it is causing my truck not to **** into overdrive. It hits that gear in between 3rd and overdrive where its not locked up, I think it's caused by this light but can't get it to turn off to tell.

All of the connections on the rear axle are good. I unplugged the sensor on the front top of the rear axle which immediately turned on the ABS light and the speedo didn't work. So I plugged it back and and everything worked fine. Until 15mph came around and the light came on....

Any Ideas???

Door Sensor Very Odd. Maybe I'll smack my door sensors alittle.... I wouldn't think my abs light has to do with my brake lights unhooked??? I know the fords have some crazy stuff... Like The Brake light either means low Vacuum or Parking brake is on??? Very odd. I unplugged mine! The Van Vacuum Pumps will still turn on the parking brake light on which in turn doesn't allow the cruise control to work. Strange Stuff like that!!!
