Question about 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
You could have a bad ABS wheel sensor or loose ABS wire harness.
If you have the extended warranty you may still covered, depends on the amount of years and miles your warranty extends to. The dealer where you bought the car would know what type of warranty you have.
If your not covered, try to have the car's ECM scanned at Auto Zone since they scan for free and you should get a DTC code. The DTC codes will let you know if it's a bad wheel sensor or a bad ABS module.
The rear sensor is in the wheel hub bearing so i don't think it's going to be bad unless you can hear the wheel bearing. The front wheel sensor is a magnetic counter that counts a speed ring around the wheel hub. If the sensor is loose or have dirt between the sensor and ring you also get the ABS light coming on some days and off others.
Have the Car Scanned and check the ABS wire harness at the wheels. You can clean the front wheel sensors by spraying break cleaner. Turn the front wheel all the way to one side and look for the sensor along the inside of the wheel hub, just follow the ABS harness along to the hub and spray the sensor. Thant may help if not it may have to be readjusted closer to the speed ring.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Yes it would be under warenty go to the dealer and have them look at it if you need help after that contact me for more help. It could get expensive to fix yourself and it takes special tools to work on abs, it could be as simple as a bad wheel sensor and has to be fixed and the light reset, the dealer has a computer to test and fix it and it would be no cost to you, the only thing they would not cover is if the brakes needed replaced but the ABS would be covered, and hurry time is short for Gm.
