Its best not to open up bleeder valve and start introducing air to the system, so the best bet i to use an old turkey bater to sucktion out the fluid in the master and then replace it with new fluid, its a minor fluid change

99 ford explorer brake pedal goes to floor. Booster or master cyl. ?

Not likely that the booster is an issue. The booster would not be able to overcome the brake fluid compression.
First open and inspect all brakes for leaks, adjustment, etc. Check all brake lines.
So if no leaks, did the fluid go low in the MC? If so, pad consumption would eat more than a MC reservoir of fluid, and not require MC replacement, but rebleeding and top up of fluid. If the pads are worn, and you replace them, often this will expel air back through the MC.

If you determine the MC is faulty, bench bleed the new one before install, or you will have lots of problems getting air out....

Brake light is staying on, brakes seem to working fine, emergency brake isn't on, what do you think may be the problem?

If the brake light in the dash is staying on then you need brake fluid,the only reasons that you would need fluid is that you have a leak or that your pads or shoes are worn out,you need to check this right away.

Steering shuttering 1999 ford explorer

This is usually caused from air in the power steering system. On more then one occasion i've experienced this after doing a brake job or an alignment. Because you turn the wheels with out the engine running you move power steering fluid throughout the system aerating it. The fix is to simply turn the wheel lock to lock repeatedly with the engine on and parked. This will "bleed" the system. Oddly Explorers are the only vehicle i've ever seen this happen to. Unfortunately it looks like you replaced the wheel bearing needlessly.

What is a abs motor 96 explorer

It is the electric motor that is intgrated into the ABS(Anti-lock Brake System). This motor is activated to supply brake fluid pressure to the correct wheels during a skid or brake lock-up so the master cylinder can be active and still let brake pressure be released to the wheels that are skidding. This motor is commonly replaced as a unit with the brake controller assembly.

Hope this helps.
