lol, you really wanna know?
There's a master cylinder switch that senses the fluid level. It was
impossible to see the damage because it was hidden inside the connector, but
it turns out that two of the three wires were corroded sufficiently that
they broke off as soon as I tried to remove the plug. I had to
"manufacture" a new connector because the old one was so corroded, but as
soon as I plugged the wires in, the light went away.
I really never suspected brake fluid level, because I thought it would set
the BRAKE light, not the ABS light. Oddly, that's not how it works.
It may also have had another problem, because I had already replaced both
VSS's. The in-axle VSS was in bad shape, and the tranny VSS had exhibited
an intermittent problem.
Lastly, I was never able to get the ABS computer to send me a code, which
made it even more frustrating.
Again, thanks to all who helped.
