How do you know it's the parking brake? Seems kind of odd, considering it usually takes a deliberate physical effort to engage them. I really can't see any way for the parking brake to engage all by itself?
Also, it's usually a mechanically seperate system from the hydraulic brakes, so the ABS sensor wouldn't have any effect on the parking brakes. Parking brakes are completely mechanical.
(I'm assuming this is the common type of parking brake on 4-wheel disc vehicles -- ie. the little brake drum within the rear brake discs.)
My guess is you've actually still got something wrong with your ABS system. That CAN activate individual brake calipers/cylinders by itself? Or maybe a flakey master cylinder? Air in the hydraulic system?
