ABS light comes on after a few minutes and wont go off till the truck shuts off. I have checked the ohm resistance and it is fine, and replaced the sensors but the light keeps coming on.

Intermittent anti-lock brake light. Light comes on and off. Comes on above 15mph and goes out when braking and speed drops below 10 mph. Them may come on again above 15-20 mph. Sometimes stays off while driving for 1/2 hour or so.
I have the same problem
power steering fluid constantly low due to hydro boost leak. estimate for repair is $906.76
Abs and Parking brake some on when vehicle starts and don't clear
ABS light came on, and ABS failed. Had it fixed at dealership, ~$2000.
The ABS light would sometimes come on while driving. It would often stay off if the vehicle was stopped and restarted. Now (around 209k miles) the lights come on and stay on. Haven't fixed yet.
