First thing to do with any brake warning is to check the brake fluid level. if that doesnt solve it.... Take off your front tires and check the ABS lines that run to the spindle (behind brake rotor) and run your finger over them.

They tend to kink and they will throw your ABS light on. Just buy new ones, or splice them at the kink and use wire nuts and some tape to put them back together.

all fuses good, remove the airfilterbox chk 3 wires going under the box, they are all for the ABS system, they they tend to be worn off by the edge of the airfilterbox. It take about 20mins and its pretty simple to chk.

try these three thing one should work for you

Well, when I have a screeching problem, I try to use Wagner Thermoquiet brake pads that have the shim built in, instead of standard ones.

They seem to stop more quietly than other brands.

The technicians that say that there is nothing wrong are probably just measuring the thickness of the brake discs, and the thickness of the brake pads, and maybe look at the surface of the brake discs for glazing, and don't want to replace parts unnecessarily.

So, I would ask them about this problem and see if they can install the Thermoquiet Wagner brake pads to rectify the problem.

ABS has more to do with pulsing 5 to 6 times a second when trying to come to a halt to avoid locking the brakes. I don't think that it is the cause of your screeching sound coming from the front.
