THE ABS Light or traction control / stability control light comes on when there is a fault in the abs system. When the light is on the abs system is not working..A diagnostic scanner - computer would be required to pull the trouble code and to diagnose./.The failed component would need to be repaired or replaced to get the light to go out. likley you have a wheel speed sensor or wiring issue to a sensor

if you can get me the trouble code..i can lead you to the cause of failure

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Is this car safe to drive? Is the only way to get the diagnostic code is through that scanner thing?
