ABS light on after muddin

Havnt really had the chance to look under the truck but after hitting a few mudholes over the weekend my ABS light stays on. When I start the truck it comes on and goes off like normal but as soon as I hit the brake, it comes back on and stayes on. Truck ia an 01 edge 4X4. Any ideas?

My truck did that once. I sprayed the inside of the wheel and mud poured out of it.. all good afterwards.

Could just be mud stuck in the tone ring on one of the brake rotors. Hose everything down really good and see if that helps.

Yeah. What they said. Or the sensor in the rearend is just coincidentally going out. Mine has been out for over a year.
