If there is an ABS issue it will turn on the red brake light as well. Were these lights on before the repair? You can try disconnecting the battery to see if the ABS resets. If the lights come back on you will have to have a scan test performed on the ABS system to isolate the problem

SOURCE: pull to the left, Brakes

Sounds like it was pulling before the brake job...if so the only thing you didn't replace was the rotors, I assume you turned them? and did you see hard spots on the rotor? discolored area that didn't cut the same......switch the rotors left to right and see if the problem moves or just replace them if they've been cut twice.

SOURCE: 2001.5 Dodge Ram Diesel 2500 4x4 Brake Pedal drops to floor

It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.

SOURCE: ABS and brake light on

The only way to solve this is to connect the vehicle to a diagnostic device/tool. Then you can read/erase errors causing this problem. If you get an error code then you need to look around for the meaning of the code and then you will understand the cause of this fault( if any).Good luck.

Replacing Calipers

When replacing the calipers make sure the bleeder valve is on the topside, not
bottom side.
They are not marked on the caliper, nor on the box they come in. Reversing
them will cause a problem with bleeding. Effect is: brake pedal goes almost
to the floorboard before any brake is applied. Spongy pedal also. Seems that
it's almost impossible to get the air out of the brake lines with the bleeder valve
on the bottom side.

Did you bleed rear brakes also? Should do all 4 whenever bleeding brakes starting w/ right rear, left rear, right front then left front. Sounds like air in lines.

Proper method of bleeding passenger rear brake line? Gravity or pedal push?

hi this is a two person fix! firstly make sure ther is enough brake fluid in the reservoir .1st man needs to be in vechicle pumping brake up and down 5 or six times. 2 nd man needs to be at rear of vehicle furthest away from reservoir.(brake master) i.e reservoir on driver side , start on passenger side.! tell him to hold the pedal down to the floor and undo bleed nipple.tighten nipple and tell him to pump again. repeat until fluid with a steady flow out of nipple. makes sure you keep cheking fluid!! then move to other side of the rear and repeat, then do the front in the same order.... you must blead all four brakes to remove all traces of air.. cheers......pablo1 @

How do i replace front drivers side brake caliper?

Jack the van up, remove the tire. Then you will see the caliper. There will be 2 bolts that hold it on to the rotor. Remove the bolts and pry it off with a screw driver or what ever works. Then disconnect the break line from the caliper. After you get the new one use a c-clamp to press the piston down into the caliper and install the brake pads. Bolt the caliper back into place and install the line. Loosen up the bleed valve on the caliper 1/2 turn and have someone pump the breaks until no air bubbles come out. Once you have a smooth stream of brake fluid coming out the valve have that person pump once more and hold the pedal all the way to the floor. Then tighten the valve.

Break bleeding

try bleeding the brakes as a system. start by making sure the master cylinder is full. then have a Friend step on the brakes and release 3-5 times. the last one they should hold as you break lose the bleeder on the passenger side rear, then do the driver side rear ,(check fluid) next passenger front and then the driver side front do each wheel until you don't see any or hear any air, thats the way i have always bleed brake systems. hope this helps
