Will the resulting effect of ABS not working cause the parking brake light to illuminate constantly or is that one of the brake sensors is bad?

there will most likely be a seperate ABS light that illuminates if the ABS fails. The brake warning light illuminates if the parking brake is pulled or your low on brake fluid. Some cars have sensors to tell you your pads are low but I dont think the Explorer has that.

Usually the ABS system has it's own warning light. Check your manual.

Does the warning light look something like; (O) ? I agree with Andrew and tenspeed that the parking brake "on" light is different

some abs faults will cause both ights the illuminate the yellow abs and the red brake. but if just the red light is on then follow andrews advice.

The parking brake is released, the fluid level is ok, but the parking brake light remains 'on', could it be the brake sensor? Or a diconnected switch wire?
