Check these possibilities; faulty brake sensor, dirty ABS brake sensor, open or grounded sensor wire, faulty wheel bearing / hub assembly.

Best to have the ABS sytem scanned first for any stored fault codes, before further testing or diagnosis.

Ok thanks, they did scann to check wireing issues, cost $100 and than said it was wheel bearing that had to be replaced - $450. Is this normal cost and or type of problem with this original concern?

Sounds expensive for one or even two wheel bearings. Best to get 2-3 written estimates for the same work, and always replace any bearings, suspension, steering components in sets or pairs, for safety sake.

Check the various online parts; www.autopartsanything.com, www.rockauto.com, www.partsgeek.com - to list only a few.

For example, they (RockAuto) list the front bearing/hub assembly from around $31.00 each for your vehicle.
