Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the ABS and related lights came on it's because the ABS module saw a problem somewhere in the system and set a fault code.

There are many things that can turn these lights on, literally any failure in the system will. The problem could be a wheel speed sensor, wiring, the brake switch, hydraulic control unit and pump motor, the module itself, the steering angle or yaw sensor. A bad wheel speed sensor is the most common cause an ABS light.

the first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting in the ABS module and testing can be done from there.
