It is a computer issue. Had the same problem with a taurus replaced booster master cylinder etc ended up going to dealer and it was something with the computer control on the brake. Sorry for the details. it sucks but anymore i wont deal with brakes because of the darn computer systems. Good luck

Does it have rear drums? The rear cylinders have been known to leak.

Brakes are something to not mess with, if they arent working correctly, get it fixed asap! Sure the abs HCU could cause this concern, but it isnt common to happen. I would bring it in to a dealer or a good shop that has the proper equipment to diagnose the problem, rather then throwing a $700 part at it.
