ABS light is On with the Excursion

My 2000 2WD with 102K miles started lighting up the ABS light on the dash but the braking system acted normal. Yesterday it hit an ABS braking pattern at a couple of stop signs, even though we're on flat-landed beach area. When the ABS started working, the ABS light went OFF, then came back on again after we started rolling again.

Anybody have any ideas? I'm going to blow out the sensors on the wheels, but don't think that's it because the tires were just rotated/balanced.

hmmm, could anything have been touched during the rotating that might cause this?

I have a '99 2wd dually and I had the same problems, and symptoms you describe. It was the REAR wheel sensor. As soon as I installed the new one, no more ABS light!

How did you figure out which one it was, seven? Are front and rear sensors the same part? All four wheels have one?

I found out from this forum! The rear wheel sensor is mounted in the differential housing, there is only one for both rear axles. Apparently it is the most common to go out. That was the advice I was given, I followed it and the problem went away. The sensor is very inexpensive, and easy to change.
