Antilock braking system 2000 F150

Changed frotn brakes on 2000 F150. After changing the ABS light came on .
Tried bleeding the brakes but it still wouldn't go off. Starting the engine with foot on the brake the light is off. Slowly taking pressure off the pedal the light came back on when the brake was almost disengaged , and stays on. The local garage put a hand held portable computer on it and the options were: line open and line fault.Is there someone out there that can help put me on the right path to correct this?
Thank you,

Thanks for the response. The ABS light is the only one lit.

i work on fords and came across this problem several times after customer installed brakes. the thing you have to do is take it to a ford garage where they hook up a scan tool and activate the abs module to bleed out the valves and then manually bleed the manual brake system.
