Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is Dan and I'm here to help get your problem resolved. Disconnect the wheel speed sensors to see if that helps make it drive better if not it sounds like the abs module has failed. If disconnecting wheel speed sensors helps then one of the sensors have probably failed or have a dirty mounting surface. You can use sandpaper and or a file to clean mounting surface of sensors. If they get debris on mounting surface it causes too large of gap which computer see's as vehicle going out of control so activates abs. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks.
