The ABS light will illuminate during each startup as it performs a self-test on the ABS system but it should go out within a few seconds. If the light remains on, or illuminates while you are driving, it means that the ABS system has detected a fault and disabling your ABS system. Providing you have a sufficient amount of brake fluid and there is no loss of fluid, you will still have normal braking capabilities at this point. However should be treated as equally important as your regular braking system. It's difficult to determine what caused the ABS light to come on as there are several factors that could trigger the light. But your vehicle will require to be scanned and diagnosed by one of our technicians.

A few examples of why your ABS light is on: 1) No signal from wheel speed sensors 2) Fault with the Hydraulic pump 3) Wiring/Electrical issues
