Hello and welcome to justanswer.comWhen that warning comes on the ABS control module has detected a fault and stores a fault code. This code can only be read with a Jag factory tool. On your vehicle the control module itself has high failures which require replacement as well as the speed sensor and sensor harness. Of course no parts should be replaced until the faults are red. As far as the cost it will vary but if it is a faulty control module the part is expensive. There are rebuilt modules available. If th e fault code is a C1095 it is usually the module.
