check for ABS codes and figure out which one is causing the problem. check all speed sensor connectors. make sure there are no debris built up on the sensors and connectors. Second thing would be to check the wheel bearing and make sure it's not loose. If all good then life the wheel, disconnect the connecter and use an ohm meter to monitor the signal comming out of the sensor, it should be consistant with spinning manually.
