Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante
Probably a bad wheel speed sensor. The abs works by sensing the wheel speeds. When the computer does not see a signal from a wheel over a period of time, it will shut down the abs turning the light on... otherwise it would think that wheel was locked (like on ice) and try to pulse the brakes at all other three wheels causing driveability issues and an unsafe condition.
A dealers diagnostic device can isolate the wheel with the faulty signal. A smaller garage may be able to do it but if they dont have the equipment to diagnose which wheel has the error it may actually cost you more in labor in the long run. Ask if they have the equipment for such tests.
