You probably have an abs wire problem. GM has problems with the abs wires breaking along the lower control arm. As you turn the wheel the damaged /broken wire looses contact , the computer senses the problem and turns on the abs light. There are repair harnesses available from GM, about $30.00 plus labor for repairing of the damaged harness . Sometimes the abs sensor itself can act up too , especially if corrosion has set into the wiring. In this case you might need to replace the sensor too ( it comes as a hub assembly and is expensive)
