Possibly one of the wheel speed sensors or associated wiring. Its where I would start. others will chime in as I believe a few others have had theirs come on too.

Check the sensors they have a required clearance spec and if off the light will trip. Not had symptoms but already read about it. Spec in manual.

Simple free stuff to look at. Tone ring on wheels, make sure no broken or missing teeth. Also look that no junk is filling in the slots in-between teeth. Then you might remove the sensors and see if they have contacted and are clean. Then as mentioned the air gap spec.

Glad you got to work. Let me ask a question here. You said you "spliced in" some wire. Did you use butt connectors or solder them in? The reason I ask is some wheel speed sensors are picky about resistance. Sometimes butt connectors after awhile will corrode and thus resistance goes up. So if down the road your lite comes on or flashes etc, that is probably the first place you need to go lookin.
