Question 03 Ram 2500 ABS light and Brake light come on when making sharp right turns

I bought a 03 Ram 2500 4x4 a few months ago. The brake line busted when I first got it, now the ABS light and Brake light come on when I turn into parking spaces. Any ideas? I've read that it could be the sensors. My boyfriend looked at the brake lines last night and they all checked out fine. He didn't have time to check out anything else. I live on a mountain so I'm constantly on bumpy dirt roads. I also read that a lot of people who have this problem also have problems with the Speedometer, I havent had a problem. I love this truck and I know all about dodge's trans problems, so i'm hoping it doesn't have to do with the trans at all. it did have a trans flush before I took it home from the dealer. let me know your ideas! thanks

Get it hooked up to a scanner and see if you can pull any codes. Not every code generates a check engine light.
