Have the tone rings on the cv shafts checked very closely. I had one with a similar issue and the tone ring had a crack in it. It was barely noticeable, but it open the gap enough to cause the light to come on once in a while. Like the ring would slip a bit on there and it would cause the problem.
Again, make sure they have looked very closely at that and aren't just trying to find a code. There won't be any codes stored if the light goes out.
