abs light

hey, I have a 98 ranger xlt with 4.0, my abs light comes on when i get to about 10 mph then stays on until i shut off the engine. It doesnt come back on until i drive it again. Also my cruise control doesnt work and it did before abs light came on. I have replaced the sensor in the differential. Is it possible to test sensors in hubs or do i need to look elsewhere?

you can always jack up your truck and grab the top and bottom of your tire and make sure your hub isn't out. thats what was wrong when my abs light came on
