My brake pedal sinks when I turn on my car. And my brake lights flicker. What could be the problem?

I have a 97 Ford Taurus. I bled the brakes last summer because I was having problems with the pressure on the pedal. Now all of a sudden, when I stop the car - my brake lights turn on and quickly turn off when I sink the pedal to the floor. Whenever my car is turned off, the pedal is really firm and the brake lights turn on when I apply pressure to it. I have no idea what the problem could be.
There have been also times where if I needed to brake quickly, my ABS light would quickly turn on and turn off after 3 seconds.
Can anyone help me out? Thanks
