Have your local mechanic service your ABS system. A wheel sensor or the module itself will need attention. You do know that once the light is on, your ABS is no longer functioning and if you have to panic stop you have to brake the old way of pumping the brakes? Oh, the whining might be a bearing or your low on fluid in the rear differential

Anytime your ABS warning lamp is illuminated does not necessarily mean your ABS functionality is disabled. If you have a whining in the rear of the vehicle you could potentially have a ton of different issues. Wheel bearing, bearing issue in the rear differential, over running clutch for the rear drive either in the PTU or rear diff assy, etc. it also could be as simple as a low fluid condition in a driveline component. GM dealer is the way to go especially for a late model Pontiac AWD. That chassis is fairly in depth
