HI there! The brake pads have nothing to do with the abs. When the light is on,there is an electrical problem some where. This could be a wheel speed sensor, a G force sensor or even the abs control module itself.
The best thing to do is to have the light scanned to diagnose the location of the problem, then do the repair yourself to save money. This way you aren't replace parts that are not needed.
Hope this helps!
