Question about 2002 Pontiac Montana
The computer codes for the ABS are not a part of the typical code scanner; you may need to take the vehicle to a dealer or specialty shop to have someone read the code for you.
The computer code will let you know why the light is on and let you know if it's something serious, such as a faulty ABS computer or something minor, such as low brake fluid.

I had this exact same problem, on a older bronco II. You need to get the ABS computer reset. You can either take it in or buy a computer your self. There are even packages that will allow you to use your own computer and just hook the car up to your lap top or desk top if you can get a cable long enough.
I never had mine done, because back then the computers were so expensive. I never caused a problem because it was only in the braking system. Now they are pretty cheap and there are a lot of other cool things you can do with them. You can reduce your gas requirements and set it for pulling, racing, and fuel efficency on the fly now. Just at the touch of a button.

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

Reports say that this can be caused by cold solder connections in the centre instrument panel where the A/C controls are. Electrical system issue here manifests itself in instrument cluster. Fix is to remove 4 screws to access A/C stuff. Look for burnt or loose wiring / terminals on connectors in this area.. Re-solder or obtain used replacemnt terminal if needed, from junk yard. Mine is 1999 Grand Caravan. Intermittent failures then permanent with instrument cluster.
