Hi my name is Robert....

To start I would check all your chassis battery connections and make sure no cables are loose, the reason being is the electronics such as the ABS are very sensitive to low voltage, so if the voltage was going down for a split second it could trigger dash alarms. IF it started to come on more and more then I would be checking the alternator output, sometimes it can be a sign if the charging system is getting ready to have problems. So make sure all your cables are clean and tight. I would also have a shop try and pull codes to see if anything is active, many times the light will store a code and with the proper code reader you can see if there are any active faults. Many times having codes pulled will save time and money and take the guess work out of what might be occurring... Hope this helps some.... Robert
