2005 Escape ABS light from Tone Ring?

Someone here suggested that a defective tone ring would cause the ABS light to go on. Mine goes on and off but I hear no noise from the brakes. Wouldn't a defective tone ring give off a audible noise?
I know that the rear brakes pads are thin. Would that set off the ABS light?
