Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
The ABS warning light came on. I checked brake fluid level but that was okay. After driving around, I noticed the warning light only came on when I used the right turn signal and I could hear a small "thump" as it happened.
Try checking the brakes itself or your rotors. that should be the problem.

If you have a diagnostic tool, hook it up and get the code from the ABS light. You CAN NOT do this with all OBD II scanners. Only some will read all trouble codes.
The thump may be being caused from ABS motor pack, or a wheel sensor, if your cavalier has one. I can't remember what year the wheel sensors started.
if you are unable to do these things yourself, I would highly recommend you go to a shop. And not all shops will work on ABS Modules.
Oh and it may be as simple as a bad wire crossing with something else, causing your ABS to think it's not working.
Hope this helps.
