Probably a faulty wiring harness Have the abs control box checked out and make sure there is not any fried or frayed wiring. Also check your bulbs some times a filament can break and link up to the filament below it and cause the same issue.

if the abs and brake light is on its most likely the wheel speed sensors, had one last week with the same problem. you need to have the vehicle diagnose to see witch one to replace. they call it the wheel speed sensor but its a pick up just above the abs ring.
