I had the same car and the same problem. It turned out to be the master cylinder. Not sure why it messed with the abs light.

Yes I did, and that solved the problem...that was 3 years ago. No issues since then.

BAD master cylender,does it fade when you sitting at a stop light,peddle go to floor,check where it connects to booster to see if wetness is under it,do u have to add break fluid to it,also check the rear at inside of back tires for wetness on tires if so bad wheel cylender.

I have a 93 LeSabre and when I got it the abs light was on. Mine was a front wheel bearing. If there is any play in any of the wheel bearings the sensor has trouble reading the wheel speed. I replaced the wheel bearing that had very little play in it and it fixed my problem.
