The default for ABS should be just plain off and regular braking action.

Sorry to ask questios but need to,

Did you replace the Master Cylinder? Ok if you didn't but I did run into one that didn't allow brake fluid return on a 92 Cadillac which should be about the same.

Another thought is to try to retract a caliper piston a bit -- don't overflow the MC of course -- but it should even bottom out and if not I would be confused too with new calipers and hoses as those would be the most likely causes?? T
