Abs light came on

Blew a brake line. Happened to me at a burger king parking lot. Your foot probably goes all the way to the floor before the truck stops. The fluid leaking should look like diesel fuel almost.

Trace the leak. I have an ABS light and no leaks, just stupid sensors somewhere. A leak would make it easy to solve your problem.

Keep the reservoir full to avoid bubblage.

Check the front wheel bearings. when the bearing starts to fail it develops slop/play and the result is ABS sensor damage from contact with the sensor ring.
not sure what year you have but this applies to the 99-04 I know for sure.

If all the major stuff checks out ok replace the sensor in the rear end, my light came on awhile ago, a guy i know that works on these things says thats the most common cause of a random BS light, the sensor was only $20 at the dealer but it was like 3 years ago.
