Did you check the ABS codes to see which ABS wheel speed sensor is faulty? There is one at each wheel that could be faulty.

Changed all the sensors, still the light stayed on, went out and got second ABS computer, light went off an then a couple of days later the light went on again. I am having the brakes purged of any air in the system and see if that takes care of the light. will keep you posted.

In my case it was the ABS pump HCU. Costly from the dealer, but you can get it from a junk yard. Or, not do it at all.
