Question about Jeep Cherokee
If the ABS isn't working the "fail safe" mode is supposed to revert back to regular brakes, but the light on the dash will remain on.
Your other option is to go to a scrapyard and find a vehicle like yours without ABS and map out where the lines are attached at both ends.
You will need the power booster, master cylinder, brass "t" block at the rear differential and proportioning valve from that vehicle, You may be able to re-use some existing brake lines from yours but best to just buy new. When replacing a line you may need several sections. Joining them should be done with solid unions not compression fittings. It is not necessary to exactly follow the original ones as long as you are reasonably close and keep lines off of sharp edges, moving suspension components and exhaust pipes. Before you even begin to do anything on your vehicle be sure the bleed valves are not frozen so when you are finished you will be able to bleed out the system and, have at least a quart of new brake fluid on hand to do that with..
