had you been getting the brake fluid flushed / replaced on a regular basis?
If not, for future reference - do it every two years. The ABS pumps can get corrosion from old fluid (water contamination).
On American makes, this service is seldom mentioned, as opposed to Euro brands that call this out every two years.
Often I see the hoods up on black or very dark color brake fluid - this indicates moisture is present in the fluid
On my vehicles with ABS - one I had for 16.5 years, 134k and the other one is 18 years and 136k - no issues with brake systems and did fluid flush / replacements every 2 years.
And I do the same on the '16 SPS as well
