Updating! When I took it to get checked out they told me it was my ABS? An I said to myself..abs has its own little light right? So when they took off my tires they seen the wires were split and someone put tape on em ..ive read on here about people splitting wires for sensors.. I wonder if previous owner did that as well.

This light is not your ABS light. Also if your ABS light comes on, likely it will stay on.

You either may have a wiring issue with the driver side front inner brake pad as this is the pad with the sensor. Maybe something is broken and when you turn the wheel hard it is stretched.

You could also maybe have a brake fluid level issue, but this should not be an issue by just turning the wheel??

You need to purchase a VAG-405 tool from Amazon for $42, if you had ABS codes it would read codes and allow you to clear them once problem was resolved. No trip to the shop or stealership.
