Default HELP! ABS & Brake light come on after 2 minutes of driving!

Whenever i start my truck (04 edge, 3.0 6cyl, 50k miles) my abs and brake light do not come on, but my abs definitely kicks on constantly every time i brake. It makes a noticeable kicking noise and i can feel it in the brake peddle kicking on, but it only does it for 1 to 2 minutes at a time, then my brake light and abs light both come on and it stops. I'm guessing this is from the computer noticing the problem and just turning off the abs, but its getting annoying and dangerous, especially whenever it rains, i need this fixed before winter comes or ill be in serious trouble. I've already tried cleaning all the abs sensors, and it did nothing, please help! I'm stumped here!

May be the sensor, that happened to me with a different vehicle and it was due to a bad sensor
