    I own a 2003 Rendezvous and have had the anti lock brake light and ABS disabled intermittently for about 8 months. I have taken it to have brakes looked at. First replaced front brakes, then rear brakes. It groans when I apply brakes especially backing up and often brakes are hard to apply. Now the light comes on and there is no more noise but can't stand notknowing how brakes will work.

    What is up with the hubs. Rears cost me $800 and seems like everybody is having front trouble. Jacked it up and spins fine not wobbling. Moaning from rear differential.

I own the 2002 Buick Rendezvous CX and I've encountered the same problems listed here. The ABS / Traction Control Lamp stays on and was throwing a code for the left wheel speed sensor as well as an anti-lock brake code (both in the wheel bearing hub assembly). I replaced the left and right front wheel hub assembly yet this did not eliminate the abs codes. 
Ultimately, I traced this problem to a break in the wire that leads to the left hub assembly. Although the sensor was properly connected, the wire (which is encased in a plastic housing) was broken. This is the wiring which leads from the abs wiring harness under the hood down to the left wheel abs sensor. 
I would suggest that you simply remove the left wheel and inspect the wire that leads to the abs sensor (there is only one wire on each wheel). Mine literally fell apart when I removed the plastic housing around the wire. I spliced the wire together and put it back in the plastic housing. After this, my abs codes disappeared and my anti-lock brakes began working again!
This is a simple fix that many people spend $1000 + on by replacing the hub assembly which does not fix the problem.

Bulletin No.: 03-05-25-004A
Date: April 14, 2004
ABS and/or Traction Control Lamp On, AWD Disabled Message Displayed, DTCs Set (Replace Front Wheel Bearing and Hub Assembly)
2002-2004 Buick Rendezvous
2002-2004 Chevrolet Venture
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette
2002-2004 Pontiac Aztek, Montana
with All Wheel Drive
This bulletin is being revised to change part number information and update the model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-05-25-004 (Section OS - Brakes).
Some customers may comment that the ABS and/or traction control system lamp is illuminated. Also, the AWD disabled message may be displayed. Upon investigation, the technician may find several DTCs set.
When normal diagnosis leads to the wheel speed sensor as the suspect component, replace the front wheel bearing and hub assembly, P/N 89047684. Refer to the Wheel Bearing/Hub Replacement procedure in the Front Suspension sub-section of the Service Manual. This new part has 6 mm (0.236 in) added to the harness to prevent any stress to the wiring.
Hope this helps if so please give me a fixya and contact me about the shutting off I did not have enough room here.

Brake warning light

a few scenarios can cause this light to come on, the level of brake fluid in the brake reservoir, normally located in the engine compartment, if this is topped up, check the handbrake switch maybe jammed in the closed position and lastly check the brake disk pads front and back for wear.

If you are not at least a shade tree mechanic, i recommend that you find a mechanic to take a look at the throttle linkage for obstructions or other abnormalities, and also to take a look at the pedal, because sometimes a dangling cable from the dashboard, or the floor mat can jam the pedal. You are right about being cautious over driving the car to the shop.
