Default weird noises and ABS light

well here are the noises (all from front left wheel well).

a loud whirring sound at high speeds. it stops when you tap the breaks then will come back in 10 more miles.

when moving from stop without touching the breaks there is squeal as if i am stopping on some worn brake pads.

and then of course the ABS light going on and off every now and then.

any help?

Sounds like you have a bad hub/ wheel bearing assembly. When they wear out they growl or make other noises and the ABS sensor is built into them and it often throws n ABS light when they go out.

thats the winner. I replaced it over the weekend and thats what it was. I also got the ABS code read before hand and it said front left speed sensor.
