the harness going to the abs sensor may have an internal break that only acts up once in a while best thing to do is have the code read, by the way brake systems don't calibrate if you are hearing the abs system activate it is either running a self test (once upon start up)or activating the system because it sees a wheel speed drop to 0 with the others reading a speed above 4 mph, also there may be engine fault of some kind like a misfire. if the abs system has set a code c0561, the car will turn on the stablitrac light if it sees an engine fault, as it will disable the torque reduction feature of stablitrac if there is an engine fault of some kind
