Check your VSS. It is located on the rear diff. You may be able to pull it and wipe the gunk off, or replace it. Pretty cheap to get an OEM part, usually around $20.

I had the same problem with my dash lights on my 02, turned out to be a shorted light wire in the tail light harness.

The ABS Sensors are on the axle knuckle right between the shield and the rotor.
