Most of the time, ABS issues or the light on is due to a bad wheel speed sensor. ABS system relies on these to function properly. I find this to the be the issue more often than not. Check for broken or frayed cables that are connected to the hubs. Usually it's the front ones that fail due to the constant turning and twisting.

Yes, the vibration/noise is the ABS system activating when it shouldn't.
