Have a pro scan for abs codes it cold be a relay but something is wrong with the system the only way you will find out is by scanning it

Check the park brake switch on the park brake pedal. Sometimes it becomes misaligned and will thurn on the light. The computer thinks that you are driving with the park brake on and turns on the chime.

Check the brake fluid level as well.
Next have the front wheel bearings checked [check your local alignment shops, some will do FREE suspension inspections] Don't buy ANYTHING until you post the results here for further assistance.

Ok the chimes was from the parking brake not being back all the way, but the ABS and brake light are still on all the time. What are AC values suppose to be for the wheel sensors when spinning tires. Thanks!

If you ae sure that is the problem that's ok, but you still have to scan it as your brake light is on it will be something more than a sensor or wire.

Check the brake fluid level (i'm sure you've already did that, but I have to suggest it)

Have a shop scan the ABS codes (the parts stores usually can't scan for these codes). Post the codes here and we'll be glad to assist you further.
