I am sorry your having this problem

90 % of the time when this happens one of the ABS wheel speed sensors is sending a bad or wrong signal to the ABS computer and it will trigger the light

as for which wheel it is can only be found out by having the ABS codes read as the code will say which wheel the issue is in

once you know that then a visual inspection of the sensor wiring at the wheel is done next and if the wiring looks good and the connection looks good and clean and tight at that particular wheel and there is NO up and down play in that wheel hub usually replacing the ABS sensor for that wheel usually corrects this issue

if you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate us here at Justanswer !
