i had the same problem, previous owner had removed the bulbs and i didnt notice when buying the car (it wont happen again). haha, but the same ABS kicking in at low speeds and having this problem wont trigger the warning lights anyway because as far as the system knows its working.

took it to my garage and matey told me it was the ABS pump. (£850) from bmw.
got a refurbed one for like £200. plus £100 to fit.

Also, Be warned that it seriously affected my braking ability and after nearly rear ending several cars I removed the ABS relay until I got it fixed.
