SOURCE: ABS brakes
Your ABS sensor in the front left wheel is bad, this may also meen your wheel bearing is gone. Jack up that side and put you hands on the top and bottom of tire then shake it. if the tire moves alot you need to replace the wheel bearing.

Perfect well at this point i would say that tha abs valve is bypassing fluid. If you can un hook the line that comes into the abs valve and plug it and try and bleed the system where you cap the line going into the abs valve. If you get a good pedal after pluging the line going into the abs valve this tells me that the abs valve is bypassing fluid give it a try i have ran into this a few time and the abs valve has been bad. Also can you rate this sluton also i do hits on my own free time thanks good luck

I have had the ABS light come on and stay on on a 2000 Suburban and a 2003 suburban. In both instances the brake system was fine. If you have not done so I would recommend you have the system checked for codes. If there are no error codes and the system is functioning properly the problem with the light staying on can be solved simply. Or at least I hope this solves your problem.
There is a small ground wire that is secured to the top rear of the engine block. It is on the passenger side of the engine. To find it remove the engine cover and reach back to locate the connection. Over time the ground connection gets compromised by dirt, grease, or corrosion. You need to unbolt this connection, clean the surfaces and re-install. On a friend's truck I just reached back and twisted the connection to seat it better and the lights have not come back on.
It sounds too simple but if it works it is much better that giving money to the dealer or a mech to solve the problem.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)
