First Tow and ABS light question.

So I just did my first tow along with a haul. I towed my Polaris Sportsman 500 and I hauled my buddy's Rancher 400 in my bed. It went amazing and super easy even with a manual. Although I did notice that one day after my tow/haul home, my ABS light came on my dash. Can anyone give me a reason why this might have came on?

Did you do any offroading in the truck? A sensor could have gotten dirty/gummed up and not reading properly.

Did it go away after you turned the truck off and then back on? I have had that problem multipul times and so has david (ranger_guy18) after putting his truck in the ditch.

Oh, you know what. I did go mudding and my truck is dirty as hell. That is probably it. Thanks guys. Oh and I will be putting up my pics in the New Ideas section.

Also check your brake fluid. When mine gets even a smidgen too low the ABS stops working.
