I have an 89 Bronco II. When I turn it over, the rear antilock light stays dimly lit (Like it's only part way engaged) There's nothing wrong with my brakes, and I used to be able to flick the ignition again really quickly and it would go out. Now it takes a couple minutes to get it off, if it even will. When the light is on, I have no brake lights or turn signal lights. What could be causing this? A worn ignition lock cylinder? Wiring issue? It's the most annoying thing in the world and I need to get it fixed fast.

Sounds like a short somewhere.

The rear ABS light in my 88 B2 is on all the time, not worth the hassle of tracing the problem brakes work just fine without that 1/2 ass ABS crap.

Yes, but while it is on my brake lights and turn signals don't work.

could be a ground issue. if you have a trailer harness start looking there.

It's also been having problems with stalling out. I'm thinking it's an ignition switch.
