There are no less than 3 sensors that can go "bad" to cause your ABS light to illuminate every time you drive and stay on until you shut the truck off. Each front wheel has its own, then the rear end has one. The one on the rear end can be contaminated with metal debris from the gear oil and go out, the most common, and you can maybe clean it to save it. New ones are only like 20$.
The front ones are way harder to replace and way more expensive. A new front wheel bearing assembly comes with a new sensor so you might consider replacing the whole bearing to lower the cost of doing these jobs seperately.
I just ignore it. I have no ABS but it is not a critical system.
Only the ford system scans can tell you which sensor is out. The cost of the scan exceeds the cost of the rear end sensor so you may as well try that.
