Hi, welcome to Just Answer.

It is commonly a faulty ABS wheel speed sensor on the right rear wheel, however; in some cases it is a faulty ABS module assembly which cannot interpret the sensor signal. The first step is to have the ABS system scanned through a factory level scanner to reveal the diagnostic codes. With these codes, we can further tell what area is of failure.
