That light comes on for 3 different reasons

1) Low brake fluid
2) Parking brake applied
3) Hydraulic problem in braking system

If you have a good brake pedal I wouldn't even mess with the hydraulic system right now. Grab a large screwdriver, hold it by the blade and rap on the side of the master cylinder reservoir. Sometimes the float will stick when the reservoir is run real low.

As I stated, it's one of those 3 things. If you have a good normal brake pedal, you can pretty much eliminate the hydraulic issue. You could even have a defective sensor in the master cylinder. Try jumping out the plug.

Unplug the sensor and jump the 2 wires together with a paper clip.

Your talking about the proportioning valve and I'm talking about the low fluid sensor in the master cylinder. The proportioning valve could be stuck too. You can find out by unplugging it.

One more thing we haven't covered here is the possibility that your truck has rear wheel only ABS. That system will put the brake light on when a code is present but will go out if the module is unplugged. $ Wheel ABS doesn't work that way.
It also appears that you may not have a low fluid sensor in that model.
