Mine is very hit or miss.  Often, as I pull out of my house, the ABS off
light will come on before I even get to the end of my street.  It does
seem to come on more often when I'm turning at slow speeds, but it has
also come on when I driving in a straight line.  It doesn't seem to happen
at highway speeds, i.e., I turn the ABS back on, and it stays on.

I am suspecting either a bad sensor, or gunk on the ABS teeth.
