Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

The light has come on because the ABS module has seen a failure that will prevent proper traction control operation and has set a fault code. There are literally dozens of possible causes including the ABS hydraulic control unit and pump motor, the ABS module itself, wiring, the brake switch, wheel speed sensors, the steering angle sensor and yaw sensor.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to see what fault codes are set and from there it will most likely require electrical testing to determine what the cause is. The reason the light is coming on is because fault codes are set and there's no question that codes are set. If they're telling you that no codes are set they likely don't have a scan tool capable of communication with the ABS module, otherwise it would be an extremely rare failure of the ABS module or instrument cluster turning the warning light on for no reason.
