The ABS light turns on when there is a problem with the car's braking system. This can mean that the ABS brakes need fluid or that it is malfunctioning. If the ABS light remains illuminated, this indicates a major problem that has disabled the ABS brakes. A major problem could be a faulty wiring harness or wheel speed sensor. If the light turns on then goes out this indicates a minor problem and the ABS brakes may still function. This is more likely to be an issue of low brake fluid or a brake pad that is wet or worn out.
