Thumbs down ABS and Traction control light on

Can anyonr help me? My abs and traction control light came on and stay on, all the time(as long as the car is running). A friend of mine cleared the codes for me, but as soon as you start the car, they come back on. The only code found was a shorted brake fluid level sensor. Does this sound like something that could cause this? He could not get into the abs system to see if any codes were in it, so I am trying to find out any info I can. I called Ford, and they only list a brake fluid level switch. Same thing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.(2001 Mustang GT all stock coupe)

disconnect the sensor and scan again -- if it still says shorted, the faults could be anything from the wiring to the PCM itself, if it trips a different code, (a code for open circuit..?) try replacing the switch, and yeah the sensor could be listed as a switch
