abs light help and brake light sticking on

well the other day i was cutting wood and got my truck stuck and couldnt go back up the hill on the logging road so i had to cut a road down threw so i just cut down a couple big trees that needed to be gone for me to get down to the main road but i left the little ones there and just ran them over. later that night i set the brake in my truck and then once i took it off the brake light stuck on and now my abs light is on. granted its about 30 as a high the last couple days and it snowed almost a foot yesterday and the day b4 my light came on.


what can cause my abs light to come on?

my ebreak light is on on the dash but my e brake isnt locked up


how can i make it shut off?

The BRAKE light is dual function. It comes on via a switch on the parking brake pedal next to your left foot. It also comes on when the fluid in the brake reservoir is low. So check both of those things and report back.

Could be a variety of things

Some easy things to check would be the brake fluid level, and the connection for an abs sensor on top of the rear axle
