Hi I'm Kevin you should be absolutely fine to drive the abs system is an electrical system fitted on top of your hydraulic brake system . It is there to try to get you out of trouble if you lock up under braking of spin the wheels when pulling away .all the time the lights are on these systems are inactive and you just have to be aware that if you do lock brakes up you stopping distance will be longer than with abs functioning but you will be fine to drive for a short period until vehicle is plugged in to locate the fault
