Overly Sensitive ABS then Error Lights

About a week ago my '08 started another wonder tick. When pressing the brake and anything but when moving slowe and what seems to be pointed perfectly straight the ABS kicks in and then 90% of the time the dash lights up the ABS, ESP/BAS and traction control problem lights. It also displays the service 4wd system message just to piss me off royal. Then after a few minutes of driving they all go away. Each of the systems work correctly otherwise when not seeing this issue. Any ideas?

Re: Overly Sensitive ABS then Error Lights

Did you already put it on a scanner to see if any fault code is set (most probably ABS related fault, so not all scanners will show this)?

I checked with my "simple" scan tool and it found no codes so it will require the special dealer scan tool.

I checked the ABS/Wheel speed sensors on all four corners and nothing seems out of place.

Does anyone know the resistance numbers to check the sensors themselves, if someone has them, please let me know.
