Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that you could have an issue in the instrument cluster itself but it's far more likely that you actually do have ABS and the light is on because of a failure. Why do you believe you don't have ABS?

there is no abs unit and no wheel speed sensors

Did the problem start after any work was done?

no work has been done yet i have had the truck for 2 weeks and i asked the old owner and he said its all ways been on
AU Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

There isn't a way to know how it started then. If it truly doesn't have ABS then I suspect the wrong instrument cluster may have been installed and is from a vehicle that had ABS.
