What makes you think it's the ABS kicking in?

Does it shudder? Does the brake pedal push back real hard? I don't think '99 2.0's had any kind of ASR/ESP do they?

Cleaning the sensors was a good idea. I would think any other problem w/the ABS would kick off some sort of brake light. (bad connection; invalid sensor readings)

Could it be warped rotors?

I had a friend's ABS sensor plug get stretched so that it didn't stay tight. That was a cheap fix.

I've bypassed a brake pad sensor to have the wires get pulled out and throw a brake light.

If you just did your own brake Teddy, I'd check the connections. Maybe run a paper towel over the sensor rings. Shouldn't be all THAT messy. & from the brake pad thread; I'd suggest you sand your pads just in case they are glazing... can't hurt.
