Take the car to a dealer would be the obvious cause of action, as they have all the equipment required to make an acurate diagnosis. Sounds to me like a faulty sensor though. I could be wrong here, but I seem to recal both the ABS and the TCS sensors being linked?

Here's a plan for you and most (all?) of your questions. Go get a manual and then go get yourself the appropriate diagnostic equipment. If you have an ABS warning light, you have DTC's. You just don't know how to find them.
