Problem: Brake light and ABS light stay lit

I'm not sure if it is coincidence or related to the problem but a few weeks ago we had a few days in a row where it was raining heavily. A few days afterwards I noticed that my brake light and ABS light were lit all the time.

I have had a sensor go bad on a 93 explorer before so I didn't think much of the ABS light but the brake light is what scares me.

The brake fluid seems to be full and the brakes seem to be in working order. I checked the reference manual and it does not state anything about both lights being lit.

Should I be worried, do I need to take this into the shop to get checked out?

Are there some steps I can take on my own to try to asses the situation first?

Thank you.

I found the following while searching around, does it sound like valid advice?

"ddress the BRAKE light first. If it's on due to a fault, the ABS system is automatically a NO-GO at self-test time."

I removed the front ABS sensors on my Chevy van and removed the cluster to yank out the "Anti-lock" bulb because I hate ABS, but that is me.

Get the code for ABS concern and then decide..........................
