Thanks for choosing JustAnswer.
My name is Vladimir.
Your ABS warning light informs you that the ABS control module has detected a fault within the ABS system. It seems that that this fault is intermittent.
It could be caused by a faulty wheel speed sensor or its wiring/connector for instance. There are many reasons that can turn these warning lights ON and we can only guess why. This system ( ABS) is supposed to be diagnosed with a scan tool. When the ABS warning light is ON, you can continue driving your vehicle, but the ABS feature will be disabled. Have it scanned for DTCs as soon as you have such an opportunity.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Relist: I prefer a second opinion.
It seems the ABS light comes on on warm days and not on cold days.
