ABS light flashes and no brake lights

Ok, so here is the deal. I have a manual 96 F150 4x4 had shaking in the steering wheel when applying the brakes. Took it in figuring it is going to be a bad rotor which it was, but also need full rear drums..Yay me!!..so I now have brand new brakes all the way around and it stops great, but now the ABS light came on flashes 16 times. I checked the error code and am reading that it could be trailer light hookup which I don't have also read that it could be fluid dripping onto a plug under the MC and to check for recalls..So I checked on both and no recalls for my truck also no fluid dripping there at all.

Have you checked the fuses?

Whether you can see a trailer plug or not, there may still be a harness for one underneath. Most F150's were factory wired for one.

I would take it back to the shop and explain that this didn't start happening until they worked on it.
