Car light ABS?
I have not used my car during lockdown just twice for 10 min drive and started the engine another time to let it run, I did go out in it yesterday and the ABS light came on and stayed on, all was okay ten week's ago has not driving my car caused this problem.

Not driving for 10 weeks, and more importantly 2 drive of ONLY 10 min which are not long enough to fully recharge the battery could be the issue.
Note: MANY retail scan tools don't read ABS codes, if yo don't already have on that does, have the codes read by someone that does.

Yep buy a code scanner as it will save you time and money. If it's a wheel sensor it's a relatively simple and cheap fix. The old sensor may be rusted into the hub so saturate it with WD40 and leave it for a few hours. You may even need to tap it out with a hammer! There will be a connector a couple of feet away so fit the new sensor and plug in. Clean the magnetic ring on the hub with WD40 too.
However if your scanner identifies a faulty yaw control you are in for a hefty bill as it's an expensive electronic device. Fingers crossed.

It's probably a wheel speed sensor failing. You need a scan tool that can read ABS codes to determine which wheel speed sensor it i.

My guess would be low battery voltage from your car sitting and not running for a couple of months. 10 minute drives do not sufficiently recharge the battery.
p.s. You need to learn how to punctuate properly. FAIL

Go for a facking drive. It does you no good to just start the car.

Check for codes with a scanner. It is very likely a bad wheel sensor.
