95 Taurus Wagon (GL)

First of all I'm a new driver and this is my first car, I've not even been on the road at all, so I don't know if this is perfectly normal.

Second of all I'm not sure if I have ABS, how can I find out?

Third of all the Taurus is not currently on the road but will be in a month or so, and on the weekly startup, sometimes I need to move the car over a bit. I notice it takes a lot of brake travel to stop the car. And now while the car was sitting there I accidentally depressed the brake pedal (no big deal right?) but now the pedal is extremely stiff, I can't move it at all!

What should I do?

Burned, turn the key to the on position (dont crank). If you have abs, an amber (yellow) abs light should illuminate briefly on the dash.

The long pedal travel could be caused by the lack of vacuum because the motor doesn't get run vary often. It also could be from air being in the brake lines.

I suggest reading the owners manual and checking all of the fluids to get familiar with the car.
