ABS - Anti-Lock Brake System
Exactly what it sounds like, stops your brakes from locking up. Sensors mounted on the hub(for front) pick up a singal similar to a wave and they have a pattern. Its given off by a special ring ont he driveshaft.
Either one of the sensors is faulty or the ring is at fault.
My money would be on a fractured ring, as a faulty sensor (from my experiences) show up at any speeds. Where as a fractured ring on the driveshaft is only shown at certain speeds!
It's best to get anything brake related checked out ASAP, Can't put a price on safety of you or your family in the car.
