ABS warning light

For some odd reason about 60% of the time when I start my car the ABS warning flashes momentarilly and shuts off. I was wondering if it could be sensor fault ie;dust/dirt??

It might be dust or dirt on one of the wheel sensors or it could be an intermittent fault.

Clean the wheel sensor properly.

everytime you start the car the computer does a bulb check and it is normal for the bulb to come on for 6 to 10 seconds. As long as the bulb goes out there is no problem. If the computer see's a problem the bulb will stay on till you turn off the car and restart even if the problem goes away.
