The abs light is telling you that it's got a fault code in its system. You need to scan the car's abs system. The proper scan tool like vagcom will tell which component is causing a problem, even which particular wheel sensor if that's the issue.

its mostly likely a bad wheel bearing and sensor Most speed related issues are with most makes of cars. Have the car scaned at a vw/audi specialist shop since they should have vagcom scanning software to scan your car. if they dont move on to the next shop.

Deathjam4 you have a good point about the wheel bearing play causing an abs sensor failure. I'd forgotten about that.
