Default Help me with my brakes plz 94 GCherokee

First issue: ABS lighton all times.
Second issue, low pedal.
One day my brake pedal dropped further than usual and my right rear wheel locked up. I checked my fluid and it was a little low but not too low, but I topped it up. I removed the rrear drum and found the ebrake adjuster cable broken and folded in half. I got an adjuster kit and replaced the cable and backed off the adjuster. The brakes and hardware were in amazing shape and I cleaned it up and checked it and all is good. I removed all the other wheels and checked the brakes, excellent! The P/O's must have had it done before selling it to me. I also got a liitle brush and cleaned off the abs rings and checked the wires, all looks ok. I backed around in a big parking lot and they adjusted up, but I still have an intermitant low pedal.

I just replaced the master cylinder (which I bench bled) but my brake pedal feels exactly like it did before, usually good but occasionally low.

I also have found no power in any wires going directly into the abs pump, but fuses and relays look ok.

Any help appreciated.

Start by scanning it with an ABS scanner...Thats the only way to find out why the ABS light is on. Some autozones have ABS scanners and will scan it for free.

Low pedal can be caused by a lot of different reasons such as bad rubber brake hoses, air in the lines, brakes out of adjustment, leaks.
