My 95 Sierra has had the anti-lock brake light on for years and never had any issue.. it may just be a glitch on this model year

but if the pedal is spongy there may be air in the system... ask the owner is he properly bled them when he changed them last

Bleed the system through, there is probably an air lock. also adjust your handbrake, could also cause the light to burn. The abs light might also stay on if one of the sensor wires going to your wheels have been damaged or is not plugged in correctly.
