one of the wheel sensors is triggering the light. tenspeed told me about these. Check the connections to the cluster, may be just a stupid plastic connector what's causing all the fuss-

Definitely not the cluster, its your wheel bearing going bad and the gap between the sensor and tooth ring are getting too far apart. Does the pedal occasionally vibrate when coming to a stop also?
