Used to be the o/s/r ABS sensor that was also the speed sensor that gave problems .Could the wiring / dirt at sensor but may be module fault . Really need to get it scanned with proper diagnostic equipment that can read the ABS also to find fault for definite .

Check earth block/wires around the nearside front headlamp area. Had problems with corrosion.
