You will need a technician equipped with a high end scan tool to retrieve the faults from the ABS module and diagnose each fault until the problem is found. It may be something as simple as fluid level / condition, or brake bad wear sensors. In any case, it would best to have a certified mechanic inspect your vehicle and make these repairs for you.
