This either means the abs module or valve assemblly the module mounts onh as failed which is located under hood. You can get used from to save money.

it was an intermittent issue at first, but now the light stays on. Is there a way to reset the ABS other than disconnecting the negative to the battery. You think it's the module or valve assembly and not a broken wire?
Expert:  Dan replied 5 years ago.
Ya, because the module is direclty wired to the valve assembly so it couldnt be a wire. No other way to reset.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
any other suggestions? I don't feel as if there is much of a solution.
Expert:  Dan replied 5 years ago.
The only solution is to replace parts.....Get them used and it will only be around $100 then install yourself within a couple hours. Sorry its not what you were hoping for, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
