wont start/dead battery condition

i have an 02 excursion with the 7.3L and was wiring my train horns in today. truck acted fine. now once i was finished with the wiring and tried to crank it i get nothing. then i put a battery charger on thinking my stereo killed the battery and it just clicks. cant even roll up the window. i unwired everything i hooked up and it still doing the same thing. batterys load tested fine and have 12.3 volts. could it be a fuse? its acting like a bad ground though.

abs light being on indicates that you should have a stored code. Have it read by a scanner with the correct Ford Bundle since these trucks aren't OBDII compliant. A couple things to check at home would be all fuses and the ABS lines where they attach to the rear of each hub.

the abs light turned itself off. i know a few weeks ago when i destroyed a front wheel bearing i killed the abs sensor but it went away when i replaced the hub. could it have been displaying that code again because i never cleared it? still not sure why it was on. still no power to the brake controller. and i cant find anywhere on the internet where it gets power from.

I don't have the schematic in front of me, check all your fuses. No it shouldn't of been displaying a old code that had already been corrected.
