Mine did that at 45 000 km it ended up being a sensor on the rear wheel, Replaced free of charge and it works fine now :)

Mine did that with just a missing valve cap. Finicky system.

I had a problem with mine as well...they replaced a bad switch on the dash as well as the right front wheel sensor..
Tried checking 3 of the 4 on the car, and had the same results. No continuity when checking resistance and no AC signal generated when spinning wheel. Even though they are a 2 wire device, they may be an active sensor rather than a passive sensor as I noticed the plug had polarity markings.

I am having a similar problem. The brakes will pulse when I first start the car. Once I drive a hundred feet or so the lights will come on and the brakes will behave fine. Anyone know what this could be? Thank you in advanced.

Welcome to the forum Albie200 !
You have asked a question in a 3 year old thread. Not sure you'll hear from those folks.
Please take the time to fill out the profile section. We don't know what car or what model you drive.

Welcome to the forum. If the ABS/Traction lights come on, there is usually a fault code stored in the ABS module. Some auto parts stores have free customer-use OBD2 code readers that will also read ABS codes (on most cars).
Snap a photo or write down the code & let us know what you find.
