Default 93 Dakota ABS Brake light stays on

My symptoms are the following:

abs / brake light stays on

no brake lites

directionals hazards work OK

I was told this is an ABS rear abs sensor.

First of all is there anything else I should check before buying the part?

Also is the picture of the rear end where the sensor is located and plugs right in?

plz advize as I can't drive with no brake lights.

you got it in the pic. I would look into the brake light switch itself, that would also cause the symptoms you are experiencing

OK, I bought the brake light switch installed it and thats not the problem as the abs light and brake light remains lit. Again , I have directionals , reverse lights, tail lightsand hazards. I was able to return the brake switch so before I order the sensor is there anything else it could be. My brakes are not low and feel fine.

I had a side gear tooth break off in my differential and it destroyed the exiter ring in the rearend. I unpluged the abs module until I could repair the exiter ring.

OK, I found that a fuse (ABS) was blown and replaced it. But a couple of days later it blew again. I did not have a 10amp so I replaced with a 20amp. Am I facing a short somewhere or is there something else to check? SHould I bump this to a new topoc?
