ABS light goes on then off?

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
ABS dash light goes on only when on the main highways, traveling at speeds above 50 mph? Does not come on at lower speeds like city traffic.
When it comes on at higher speeds it will come on for a while, then back off?
Thanks for any help!

Mine did this sporatically for 2-3 days. It just went away. I think there are sensors on all 4 wheels and they are known to periodically go bad. I am not sure exactly what it looks like though.

Well that just sux. Stay off main highways and keep it under 50 mph and it will be fine.

There may be some "gunk" where the sensor enters the wheel hub. Remove the sensors and clean it up with some brake cleaner. I had the same intermittent problem and cleaning the sensors and the hole it goes into solved my problem.

Edit Me on a personal attack (narnwv)
And Mean Green Gets away with calling Me a noob and stupid.
Please Mean Green do not ever give me your arrogant opinion ever again.
Go back to the ZJ section where you belong.
That's if you know the difference between a WJ and a ZJ???????

Personally, I think you should put tape over the ABS light and be happy. You just don't get it.

You did say that you are a dummy right here, your words not mine.

Yes MeanGreen, I'm sure that's what you would do on your own vehicle, to solve that kind of problem, because you haven't a clue on how to fix the problem.
But I still know how to fix your problem, use that tape to put over your big fat mouth.
And yes I do get it. But you don't.
Now don't go running to the Teacher, and tattle on Me for this bad message I sent you.
Get A Life!!

You can't belittle me around here. You are too simple minded. Now that the forum knows that you are an asshat, who's gonna help you? I don't tattle on anyone mods on this forum are active members that read threads. Unlike you I don't come on here when my Jeep acts up begging for help. I helped you with you CPS and you acted like an asshat. This time I just much rather poke the chit with a stick for a good funny dummy.

I agree with this. WAY too many times, I have pulled a wheel sensor to find metallic particles stuck to the magnetic end of the sensor. Of course, this is going to distort the signal, so oddball problems are usually a giveaway about this.

But pop them out, clean everything up nice, see where that gets you!

The front sensor wires are known to brake since they follow the wheels as they turn. The air buffeting above 50 may cause it.
