your brakes is what is wrong. but get down and into your brakes with a high pressure hose. sometimes mud. snow or sand gets in the sensor and there is no actual problem. especially if you were spinning your wheels alot.

My ABS started going out a couple months ago. At first braking was kinda scary, but now that the ABS is completely gone the brakes work pretty good, except I need new pads. I plan on replacing with standard power brakes. Never liked the ABS.

Most likely a wheel sensor. Have someone with a scanner that reads ABS plug into OBDII port under the dash and it will tell you which wheel sensor is at fault.

Wheel speed sensor. Check for mud, loose or broken wire.

I have had the light on my Explorer for years. Apparently the only thing to do is take the bulb out...... both times I have had it "fixed" this is what they did.
