Default 91 Ranger anti lock problem

I have a 91 Ford Ranger 4x4 6 cylinder. Started having problems with the brakes. The anti lock light stays on all the time. There is no fluid going from the master cylinder to the rear brakes. We are thinking it has something to do with the anti lock system, but we know nothing about working on that part. Can anyone help?

ABS motor may be stuck/defective or has trapped air in it. Not sure about the Ford RABS, but on some Dodges and GMs you have to bleed the system with the vehicle running in park or neutral(manual) for the motor to reset in order to bleed the brakes. Use extreme caution if doing this without a hoist, in order to prevent the person under vehicle from getting run over. It will require a second person to pump the brakes.
