Is your Trac Off Light also on? If so this could be one more area to check. These are integrated and can affect each other. If the wheel speed sensors are bad (and they do fail more than reported) The will need to be removed, cleaned, checked and re-installed or replaced. The ABS Light will come on if the wheel speed sensors are malfunctioning.
\015\012IF NO Trac Off Light:
\015\012On my 2002, I removed the battery, battery tray, and access the ABS system located just below the master cylinder. It should have several brake lines going into a metal portion, along with a black plastic box like electrical panel connections. I remove the electrical connection (to the right side) Use a mirror to see the whole set up from behind to remove the electrical connection. There are 4-bolts holding the black body panel onto the silver body. Remove these bolts.
\015\012There should be holes in the black box panel you are detaching, and silver rod shaped that insert/go into these holes left on the metal box.
\015\012I had to only clean and lubricate the holes and rods, as they had become dirty and corroded with oxidation. After cleaning, I re-attached, replugged the connection and checked operation. The ABS light went out and the ABS was checked and everything worked fine.
\015\012If you do this and the light does not go out, then you could have a problem with the wheel sensors or the ABS Actuator itself. In most cases that you take it to a garage/mechanic, they will cite the ABS system that has to be replaced and that may not be the necessary case. Mine just needed the holes and rods to be cleaned.
