2001 Ranger takes dip in pond

My 01 Ranger was at my friends house and needed to be moved. It had been sitting there for a couple of weeks. When they tried to start it the solenoid just clicked, so they just put it in gear and went to look for a booster pack.(DIDNT SET PARKING BRAKE) Truck rolled away and into a pond! After retrieving said truck from water and starting it (it didnt completely submerge, just to bottom of grill and water was in the floor of cab) My question is, my ABS light came on. How do I dianose where to remedy it? It had never came on before.

There are sensors at each wheel near the disc. Perhaps one of the wires were damaged when it went in the pond or when it was retrieved. Check that the wires are still connected to the sensors or if there is any damage to any of them. If there is nothing noticeable then it may be wise to get it checked by a shop. Perhaps it's the module. You don't want any issues with your brakes.

There's also the speedometer/ABS sensor on top of the rear differential. Water could be changing the resistance at that connection. Some electronic cleaner or just appropriate disassembly and drying might solve the problem. By the way, my '99 has a 'vent' hose out the top of the diff, and if the back end of the truck got submerged you could get water in there.
