Search the sensor and se if this is dirty maybe a few flakes of rust have stuck onto the ABS sensor which is magnetic. In some cases you just have to clean up the sensor and reluctor ring and the problem is solve. The reluctor ring can be sprayed with some WD40 then brushed with a wire brush, then everything degrased and wiper clean. After you have solve the sensor problem you can turn off the indicator.
