Hope this helps,mine comes on sometimes in the winter after running thru a deep puddle of water(couldn't stop- traffic had to do it)at a good clip,light was lit up for a few hours one time, a day or so others,before I could get it for service went out by itself at start-up.
I assume it dryed up and reset when the key was switched off/on.

My abs light would come on periodically, and on a panic stop, allow one side of the brakes to grab while the other side wouldn't. I thought I was going nuts, because it didn't do it every time. Took it to my brake shop (I was prepared to just have them do a complete 4-wheel brake job if it meant not having the problem). I have 4-wheeel ABS, so they crawled up under the front end and snugged up bolts that hold the abs sensor in place on each front wheel. They did the same thing on the rear (only one sensor on the rear). That was in February, and i haven't had a problem since. So, maybe just snugging up the bolt that holds the abs in place, and making sure the plug is firmly seated, is what you need to do. Hope this helps.

ERC,,,, I would replace that VSS sensor on the rear diff. It is not expensive and really on a 99 that the MOST Common thing that can cause the ABS light to come on,,,(I really dont know what else would,, unless it has a GEM module...)
