My ABS/Brake lights come on at some point after my truck is started. The DIC instructs to service brakes soon. There is nothing wrong with my brakes. I am hoping this is the problem and an easy fix!!

The ABS and Break light comes on and we cleaned the ground, but that did not work for more than a couple days. The light continues to come on, sometimes immediately, sometimes after 1+ hours of driving. If it is bumpy it seems to come on quickly. The problem persists.
