brake problem

hey guys, I have a 97 7.3 with the stock running gear and brakes.

For the past several months, my emergency brake and abs brake light have been on...

well i can finally afford to fix it, so i decided to redo the brakes. Although the lights have been on they have always preformed as they should.

Last week, I did new calipers, pads up front, and rotors, and the rear i did maybe 2 months ago. I also replaced the abs sensor, and the master cylinder. Ford has also done the recall work on the cruise control wiring/switch.

But the Brake lights are still on! Also, with the the old and new mater cylinder if i hold the brake pedal down it will slowly, very slowly but surely, bleed down to the floor? as far as i can tell, and ive been watching it closely, I am not loosing any fluid

I can not figure out why the brake will slowly work down to the floor, or what is making these lights come on, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I dont know if it is relevent, but my cruise control does not work, I have power all the way to the fuse box, so i think my truck is not allowing the cruise control to work because of the brake issue, would a brake position switch be causing my problems?
