The ABS light and the AWD disable light periodically come on simultaneously, particularly with wet road conditions on my van with versatrac. Can you tell me what the problem is that causes those lights to come on?
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like you have a front wheel speeds sensor that is going out, but to be sure lets scan it for codes. Here is a guide to help you:

If you do not have a scanner you can test the sensors by hand using a voltmeter here is a guide:

Here is how you will change the sensors out (below).

Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

You were so right the right front ABS speed sensor was out. I got the hub for $168.00 and the light has not come on since. Thanks for the guides I love this site.
