ABS Fault Light comes on

Everything fine until speedo hits 50mph, then ABS, Brake Pad, Spanner and Stop lights come on. Turn ignition off and back on, all OK until 50mph reached again. Garage have run diagnostics but no faults are indicated. Brakes appear fine, not touching brake pedal when lights come on.

Good thing is you can re create the fault.
Bad news is now you have to find a diagnostic specialist to monitor all the sensors as you hit 50MPH to find which sensor isn't reading right.
ABS sensors are tiny AC generators so the signals can be checked with a 'scope.
In effect each wheel has the ABS sensor which acts as a speedometer for that wheel.
