Hi, I had a similar problem on my 1999 Venture. I found it was the Booster that went bad. I replaced it and still have the ABS light ON. I bleed the brakes (on these anti-skid systems I bleed the brakes without power) and still had the ABS light ON. Long story longer, when the booster went bad it shorted the ABS Brake Computer ($800)underneath the drivers seat. I had to return to my duty station and had to let the GM pro's figure it out. The computer plus the labor was $1100. Thanks GM for raping me!!!

I had the same problem with my 2001 Venture except mine was caused by a broken sensor wire on the front right wheel hub. It occured right after replacing front brake pads. The sensor is not sold separatly so I had to replace the complete front wheel hub. ABS now works great!

As for the first guy, sounds like a misdiagnosis to me. Never heard of a booster shorting a computer! Anyway, i agree it sounds like you may have damaged a sensor or sensor wire while doing the brakes

Try bleeding the master cylinder pump under the hood, if it has bleed points, mine is a 99 venture and I kept bleeding there first because I wasn;t getting any fluid to the back brakes. After all that my ABS and BRAKE dash light went off.

Did this start happening all of the sudden with you not changing anything? If so, then they probably moved on the the spindles and will have to be adjusted. Have they always done this? Check to see if you have the correct size wipers installed. See the Sources and Related links section below for 2002 Chevrolet Venture wiper blade size information.
