Brake issues?

Ok sittining at a fuel station, still in drive foot on the brake, my ABS light starts flashing. 16 short flashes and 1 long. Code 12 by the book which is a pass for the self check. I parked and filled up and when I got in the truck will not shift. Column is locked. I don't have any brake lights either. All the fuses are good. The brake pedal on/off switch is good and have 12 volts throught it when pressed. When I pull the abs test connector apart the ABS light goes out and when I ground out the orange/black wire it doesn't give me any codes. If I pull the VSS sensor plug on the diff the ABS light stays on -plug it back in and its back to flashing. I have the manual and have been trying to trouble shoot but eltronics fluster me to death.
Anyone have this problem before or have any idea where to start checking stuff? Thanks for any and all suggestion and help

Re: Brake issues?

Anyone have any idea where I should look? I pulled the abs module and swapped it for a known working one and still the same. How would I determine if something was grounding out? Not much with electonics but can't I put a meter on pins and how would that look on the meter.

can I just be done with the abs and have standard braking? I really need the truck for work. Is there some stuff I can unplug to unlock the gear selector?
Thanks

Can you just start in neutral? At least that should get you moving.

I'm thinking I would check the multi-function switch on the steering column

Thanks never thought of that. Ill check through some of the ford skematics and see if that could be ground out something on the ABS

I think I still have to hit the brake pedal to shift it. NOt sure though--dash is all torn apart now. I unplugged the brake-shift selonoid and now I can shift it, just no RABS. I am thinking that the selonoid went bad -causing the no shift thing and grounding out something in the brake system, screwing the ABS.
Before I unplugged everything the ABS would run its self check at key on and would be fine until you pressed the brake, then it would start flashing. To start the ABS Check manually you have to ground out the orange/black wire under the glove box. IF I unplugged the connector and hit the brake I got no flashing light, and no light if I grounded it manually. So with the connector together(ABS test) I am thinking that the brake-selonoid would ground the sytem out making it think it was a test. And withe the selonoid bad no shifting.

I might be way off but crap theres alot of stuf in the dash. And I HATE electrical components.
What do you guys think?
Thanks
