My car's quite a bit older than yours, but it might be the same problem. The ABS light can come on if your hubs are rusty or dirty. The hubs have ridges on them, and the ABS sensors sense these ridges to know if the hub is turning or not. When the hubs get rusty or dirty, the sensors can't pick up a signal, and they freak out.
Go to the car wash and do some serious washing on each of your hubs. Lean over and blast some water from underneath the car onto the hubs as well. It's a cheap start, and if you still have to have some work done, the mechanic will thank you.
PS-My ABS light went off after I did this. That was a year ago.
