I believe that I have a stuck/defective Brake Light Switch, as I have no brake lights,(although the turn signals continue to function)and the cruise control has also stopped working. Would that scenario also cause the ABS dash light to come on?

I presently have the coach at the Workhorse Dealer. Is there any thing else at play here? Advise ASAP!

Golden I am on expert by any means on this subject... But from what I understand is that the ABS Light is like a GFI receptial it don't take to much to set it off... So I am thinking that if they fix your brake lite problem it will take care fo your ABS light......
I am not postive on this just my 2 cents worth...

You will get some expert help soon I am sure... (may have to wait til tomorrow) it's late on the east coast

Does the cruse control also not work? If so, the CC fuse is probably blown. All that stuff seems to be tied together off the CC fuse.

Improper positioning of the brake light switch will cause the cruise control to be imoperative as well as the brake lights. I found out on my most recent trip. Too bad you took it to a WH dealer. The brake light switch is really flimsy. It has nylon threads and is mounted through a metal clip. All I did was push it in towards the break pedal arm. It sits at a perpendicular angle to the arm. When pushing it in I heard a racheting sound and the switch tightened up. No more problems after that.

Golden,

We had the exact same problem. It turned out to be a blown brake light fuse.
