ABS Light on, Not working

ABS light came on out of nowhere, and tested and sure enough full lock up. ABS not functioning at all. I was curious if anyone could help me out? I tried the code scanner I have but it seems to only grab engine codes.

Would assume that autozone would not have something like this? Makes no sense to me why brakes would be perfectly fine (abs functioning normal) and then no abs at all. Excursion is one big sled when its sliding

That's exactly what mine was. The rear ABS sensor that mounts above the pinion on the rear end, is also your vehicle speed sensor that works with your cruise control. My ABS light was coming on at random times when my sensor went out. I figured it had to be the rear one because if I was on the highway with the cruise control on, and the ABS light came on it disengaged my cruise control. So that let me know it had to be the rear one. Picked up another one and changed it out....no more ABS light.
