Check for fault codes. There could be a fault with the ABS.

If it's not getting power, then it will show as a fault, (light on). SAee what you can don to power up the ABS and see what happens, you may need to get the fault code cleared.

ABS is not tuned to a particular ECU etc.

Pull you bleeder valve out and clean it.

They block up with dirt and grime. Just use a small drill by hand.

Thought I'd update this problem is now fixed the tone wheel must have been damaged looked perfect to naked eye but must have had a fault changed whole rotor and light went off easy !!!
