Hi .

When this happens it means the management system for the ABS system has encountered a malfunction within the system.

most common is a bad wheel speed sensor .but could be one of many sensors that have malfunctioned .

When the system sees a fault it will set of the other warning lights and disarm them ,

IF the check engine light is also on then a simple issue like a O2 sensor code will also trip these warning lights ON..

First you need to be hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes .from the codes you will then know what is causing you this issue .

Like said may just be one wheel speed sensor causing you this .

Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.

There is no check engine light

Okay with no check engine light its most likely an issue with the ABS system .

Sometimes this can happen if you hit a pot hole and the steering is out of alignment .

You will be okay to drive if you don't feel any drivability or braking issue .

Kind regards Greg
