If the light is on it means there is a problem,the computer goes
through a check sequence every time the car is started and moved.If the
light stays on a problem exists!Before you take it to the dealer you
might check the fuse for the ABS.The fuse is located under the dash on
the left side in the relay panel,it is a 10 amp (red) fuse plugged
directly into a relay.If there is no relay in the relay panel under the
dash with a fuse in it check under the back seat.The ABS relay is the
only relay with a fuse in it.
