Good afternoon since this light is on the first thing you will need to have done is have the trouble codes checked in the abs control module and in the engine control module to see which trouble codes you have , more then likely you have a faulty steering angle sensor (G85) but you will need to use a scan tool to verify this any repair shop should have the capable scan tool to check this for you . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided tonight thank you
