Per your description, I would suspect you have a faulty wheel speed sensor. Take you vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto and have the codes pulled for free. Write them down and let me know what they are and we can go from there.
Good luck.

Meaning of ABS light

On vehicles equipped with antilock brakes (ABS), a second warning light is provided to warn if a problem occurs within the ABS system. The ABS lamp comes on when the ignition is turned on for a bulb check, then goes out after the engine starts. If the ABS warning light remains on or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system.

What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on.

Just had new brake line , brake pads, rotors installed on my 99 chevy venture van, after coming out of the shop the abs light is staying on, why? thanks

Because you now have an ASB System Malfunction

Most common cause is a Wheel Speed Sensor

Now--was it damaged by the repair shop

or did they not bleed the system correctly

or not clear the ABS Light?

Where is the abs sensor on a 1998 chevy venture

there are four ABS sensors. one behind each wheel in the hub assmebly just follow the shielded wiring harness down to the sensor, it is at the behind the brake rotor in the hub assmebly, the lock up problem is not the sensor, the function of ABS is to stop lock up of the wheel, this problem is caused by a leaking ABS hydraulic control unit, that is the part with all the brake lines coming out of it

Traction Contrl and ABS Light on

No, it is probably not related. Usually the ABS and traction control light is either a wheel sensor problem, located in one of the wheel bearings, or most likely in the wire harness from the wheel bearing sensor. Remove wires and spray clean with a good solvent electric spray, and check the condition of the receptacle. I have had these problems with my 02 AWD so many times it has become almost routine. GM really have a problem with this type of speed sensor in the wheel bearings. In the AWD model, it keeps the car in FWD if the ABS light is on for any reason. JUNK!
