Question about 2000 Ford Expedition
For this problem you may need to put your SUV on a specialized scanner. The ABS system has a dedicated diagnostic plug to test the computer within it. The fact that your lights are dimming is unusual. For something to pull enough power to dim the lights without blowing a fuse first is showing this is a wiring problem.
You may want to disconnect the NEG battery cable or park the SUV outside your house, away from anything valuable. There were recalls on Cruise control circuits for some year models. You should read the Vin# to the Dealer as it is possible this unit was missed. You can also check under the Brake pedal lever and see if there are any broken plastic switches. Sometimes a foot will break parts in the interior of the drivers pedal area. The resulting short could affect some lighting.
The ABS warning can simply be a wheel sensor which fell out of its mount. For it to ground consistently to dim lights, I don't see it happening. Would like to know the results of this repair.
