2007 Bounder 38V- ABS Light on intermittently-Freightliner can't find anything wrong

I hope someone has some ideas on this. Our ABS light comes on intermittently in our 2007 Bounder 38V. We have had it to Freightliner and they replaced all the sensors and did a complete brake check. They say that the brakes are working just fine and have no Idea why the light comes on. It will come one for a day or two and then goes off. We are sure that the brake system is working fine as Freightliner assures us the brakes are in perfect condition. Any ideas would be greatly welcomed.

I have the exact same problem on my 2012 Freightliner chassis, between the previous owner and myself, this has been checked / cleared at least 4 times and still not resolved. Intermittent ABS light, brakes fine. Light is on more than it is off. I quit worring about it, but will follow this thread and hope that perhaps someone has an idea as to what the issue is.

The ABS light has is not about "brake function" so of course the brakes should pass a test. ABS is about deciding when and how to apply the brakes, whether to "pump" the pedal or not to avoid skids. The light indicates a problem with either the wheel speed sensors or the ABS computer ability to manage the brake pressure. An intermittent ABS light is almost always a wiring problem (loose or corroded connection) or a faulty wheel speed sensor. The brakes still brake fine, but the ABS controller cannot avoid a skid if the driver jams too hard on the brakes.
