My 1998 Malibu had the same problem. The reason that it is on is because your brake sensor is located in your wheel bearing, and most likely your wheel bearing is worn out. I replaced both front wheel bearings and the ABS light is no longer on.
Go to Auto Zone. They will check the code and clear it for you free of charge!
Have vehicle scanned--most auto parts stores will do this free--if no problem they can clear codes
Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine problem or clear codes
Either try disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes or have vehicle scanned to determine problem and clear codes
remove the battery terminals for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Codes will eventually clear on their own if the problem(s) no longer exist. If you can't wait disconnect the battery, reconnect after 30 minutes. The problem with this is you loose clock and radio settings.
After fixing the cause of the problem. you clear code with a scan tool, or by unhooking the battery.
The check engine light goes on because there is a problem with the engine control system. Until the problem is fixed it will continue to come back on even after you clear it by disconnecting the battery.
i have a different make and model of truck, but had the same problem after jump starting mine after the dome light discharged the battery. I found in the Haynes manual that the ECM on the fuel injection might have gotten an error message causing this problem. After charging the battery, I simply had to disconnect the negative battery terminal for 20 seconds or so to clear the ECM and the problem went away. Alternatively in my truck, it could take up to 50 starts for the engine to clear itself, I refused to wait that long. Hope this helps, good luck.
On this vehicle the check engine light must be reset with a scan tool.
Disconnecting the battery and pumping the brake will clear trouble codes from an ob2 vehicles computer. No it will not. You need to fix the problem
