Default ABS problem??

I own a 2004 Edge 4X4. Lately, while driving, I hear a repetitive thumping sound as if a nail or rock were stuck in a tire. I've checked all four and haven't found anything. Last night the ABS warning light came on. Could these two issues be related? Or, could I have two separate problems? Any info/ideas will be very much appreciated.

You might have something stuck on the toothed ring gear for the ABS, maybe something is stuck on it, and interfering with one of the speed sensors?

he wont have that because he has a 4x4, the 2wd's have the reluctor ring on the brake rotors. as for the issues, its possible they are related but its hard to say for sure. If the wheel bearing/ hub assembly is going bad it could make noise and a bad hub assembly can cause the ABS to act up because the sensors for the ABS are built into the hub assembly.

i would also think its the wheel bearing, i would start by looking there.
