This may be related to faulty wheel speed sensors which are located at each of the four wheels. These sensors monitor wheel speed which is relayed to the ABS system. When the ABS system detects an abnormal speed for the condition, it engages the ABS. When these sensors are faulty, this can cause the light to come on intermittently for no reason.
