Default A few lights on the dash

My ABS light came on today and the parking brake light also comes on intermitenly. My buddy said it could be a wheel bearing. Im just wondering what it could be. And how much the repair would be as well. Thanks.

Mine JUST started doing that!!!
It turned out to be low on brake fluid because my MASTER CYLINDER is leaking!
I am fixing it in the morning

Mine doesnt exactly look low? Maybe just under half full? Im pretty sure my brakes are good so im not sure if this would be considered low or not? Any more suggestions would be appreciated.

My ABS and Brake lights are taken care of now.
My lights went on because of the brake fluid level (down only 1/4 inch)
and because my master brake cylinder needed to be replaced.Mines good now.

Did you have any luck figuring out YOURS?

Well the brake light was from low fluid, it was about a quarter or a third full. I topped it off and both lights went off. But i figured out i have a fluid leak right where the front line from the master cylinder goes into the left/right wheel distribution block is where it leaks. Idk if this makes any sense to you or not but it shouldnt be too hard to fix or too expensive to have it fixed. Lol

Yes the older trucks like yours have a setting done by ford for some reason, when the brake fluid gets low, those lights go off. It will keep going off as long as the fluid drops due to low brakes and the more fluid it has to use to compensate for very low brakes
