Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. In this situation, with no codes, you either have a low fluid condition in the brake master cylinder reservoir, or, the scanner you are using is not compatible with the ABS interface on this car. I would recommend you check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir first. If it is low, this will turn on the light, because the front brake pads are worn. If the fluid level is at the "MAX" level, I would recommend another scan with a compatible scanner. ABS issues always require an accurate scan; it can get real expensive replacing ABS related parts that may or may not fix the problem. The key here is accuracy, not guesswork. If you cannot get a compatible scanner to work (anytime the ABS light is on, there should be a code (assuming the fluid level is good)..
