Check the abs/sbs relay, its in a black box around the engine side, once you open the fuse box check the relays you will see two relays they wrote sbs on it, one is black and the other is silver, try to change it and lets see how it goes.

Sensors, tone rings, wiring, fuses or the actual module itself are all possible causes. If the front and rear wheels/tires are different sizes, that will also set of the ABS light...however since you said it comes on and goes off later, i would suggest checking the magnetic piece near the tone ring. Make sure it hasn't picked up a bunch of shaved metal or anything.

ABS, it is anti-lock braking system, ABS anti-lock system long light is out of question. As usual just open, have the opportunity to repair shop to check, some low car not ABS still to diagnostic tool.

    Check the emergency brake handle. When it is pulled up even one click (in my car) the brake light on the dash comes on and the daytime running lights shut off. Either the handle is up just far enough to activate the switch and not the brakes or the switch could be bad or loose.

    Dash lights come on when I press the brake peddle

    Sounds as if your getting a back feed. Most likely from the brake light bulbs (part number 1157). Take out the brake light bulbs and see if the dash lights still come on when you step on the brakes. If so check the lead contacts on bulbs, sometimes they get squished/corroded and jump both contacts, replace bulbs with new and recheck. Hope this helps.
