My cigarette light, window and abs went out at the same

Customer Question

my cigarette light, window and abs went out at the same time. Mechanic just told me that I need to replace brakes hydraulic $2600 and I don't trust it.
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: just the abs light?
JA: What is the model of your '600 Mercedes?
Customer: 2007 s550
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
