Any chance you would have had the exprience that the ABS warning light keeps on, but with no ill to the brakes?
Could that be an indication of battery running flat soon? or other seasons?

wheel speed sensors & connectors:
(same procedure for each wheel)
connector: remove wheel, you will see a wire coming through the wheel well down to the area behind the brake rotor. that wire goes through a coupling (connector) attached to the wheel well. check that the connector has not come loose or frayed.
sensor: unbolt the sensor (follow the wire) from the rear of the hub. the sensor is magnetic and over time it gets gunked up with dust & debris. shoot some compressed air or brakleen on it.
also (offhand i don't remember this procedure exactly), behind the disc rotor there is what resembles a toothed disc, something like a sprocket, that is where the speed sensor picks up its signal. make sure that hasn't gotten filed down by random debris getting caught between the "sprocket" and the sensor. if you need more detail than this, reply to this post, i'm writing this at work from memory, have to consult manuals at home.
