Tell us a little about when it happens and about the car? How many miles. Have any of the wheel bearing hubs been replaced? When does this light turn on--going straight down the road or when the wheel is being turned at slow speeds such as around parking lots?
My car started occasionally turning on the light when I would move change the steering wheel at slow speeds. Then my tire rotation place told me my bearing showed some play and tried to sell me a new one; they mentioned the light coming on sometimes is a symptom of the bearing being looser. For the record the bearing was just as the acceptable limit for in/out play of .005 IIRC. Replaced bearing and light didn't come on for long time until the other front wheel was ready to be replaced.
It can be the steering wheel position sensor and it might just be a connector at one of the 4 wheels that doesn't have a good connection.
