The PCM doesn't know you have ABS. It'* controlled by the EBCM (electronic brake control module). These rarely fail (I've never heard of one failing). You probably had a wee bit of dirt in a wheel sensor, and the system just needed to reset after it came out.

May be early signs of something failing. Don't worry about it unless the light starts coming on more frequently.

Mine does that too, as well as my traction control light coming on, it has been doing this for quite a while and no problems yet so I wouldn't worry, like said above it prolly is just some dirt

Now I would bet you have a problem developing with yours. Probably time to get the Antilock codes diagnosed.
