Most problems with ABS systems are due to duff wheel sensors or faulty sensor rings. If they have been checked and tested it then may be the Electronic Control Hydraulic Unit. It could also be down to a poor conection to the said unit. One of the failings of electronic diagnosis is that if the diagnostic equipment can't communicate with a specific unit on the car it assumes it is faulty when in many cases it is only its connections that are poor. The ABS control unit on the Laguna II lives behind the left inner front wheel arch in front of the wheel behind the plastic covers - this area is prone to water ingress and corrosion. It would be well worth having a look
