New front brake system, now I have BRAKE & ABS warning lites

I have just finished replacing the calipers, rotors, pads and hoses on the front end of my bone stock '95 F250 4x4.

I bled the brakes and now the ABS & BRAKE warning lights are illuminated.

Brakes feel good, but since I bought it, there has been a WHOOSHing sound when I hit the brakes hard at low speed or a stop. Not sure if this is normal for an OBS, but it was good before I dug into it. I did not mess the master cylinder during the process, only to add fluid.

No leaks, etc.

Do I have air trapped in the lines?

Do I just need to bleed it more? I bled all the 18 year old fluid out of it, and ran about 2 qts of fluid thru broth front caliper lines.

Thanks in advance!

I went out there fresh and ready to go. Bled each line about 10 times.

It worked.

Still have minor WOOSHing, but the brakes are working, not leaking. I'll wait for the M/C to blow and I'll install a '96 model M/C.

The wooshing is most likely the booster.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.
