1991 SL500 ASR/ABS Light problem

My car has just returned from a service and these lights will come on 5 secs after the vehicle starts moving.After reading several possible causes on the forum on this problem I carried out an inspection on the following as advised:
Checked the sensors on the front wheels and cleaned them.
The brake lights come on when peddal depressed so I don't think it is the brake switch .
My speed control works.
I have tried the turning of the steering left and right trick.
I have charged the battery.
I have disconnected the battery hoping the fault will reset itself.
I don't have a code reader to check code faults.
Are there any other possible causes for this problem.
With the lights on everything seems to work.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

I have a further developement on the above problem.All of a sudden the lights for no reason do not come on when driving as before,but now my brakes are behaving strange in that when NORMALLY applying they shudder as if the ABS is coming in when not required.
Is there a reason for this .can anybody offer some guidance it would be greatly appreciated
