ABS LIGHT - People who have an anti-lock brake (ABS) light illuminated on their vehicle might be tempted to continue driving with it on since the brakes may appear to be functioning properly. The reality is that this light is activated when the ABS brakes experience a problem that could negate their use. if your ABS system isn't working as it should, you're at a greater risk of losing control of the vehicle and suffering a crash.
The most common cause of ABS lights is a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor or a worn wheel bearing that contains the wheel speed sensor. Other causes could stem from malfunctioning sensors or issues with the device that controls the brake pressure. You will need to have the system diagnosed to determine the origin of the problem first to know what is causing the ABS malfunction.
