Does it come on immediately after the car is started or when you press the brake pedal?

usually when i start the car for the first time in the day its when i press the brake pedal. if the car is warm then it comes on right when i start the car.

Check your 15A STOP fuse in the engine bay fuse box, then check your 3rd brake light. On my car the power cable going into the trunk lid had broken from opening and closing so many times and that shorted out the STOP fuse.

Apparently the ABS won't work if the fuse is blown.

But just go through this whole list and you'll find the problem:
