If the abs light came on in your car while driving it means that there is something wrong somewhere in the anti-lock system.

Normally the ABS light will came on for a couple of seconds just after the car is started because the system is running some self test, but when the light will stay on and do not turn of then something is wrong and it means problem on the system.

Possible cause of ABS light to came on

Fault somewhere in the ABS system.

What to do?
A fault in the system will not mean that you do not have brake in your car, because ABS will only be activated during panic braking therefore if there is fault in the system it only means that the ABS will not work in this situation but the normal brake will still work just fine.

Bring the car to the repair shop to have it check by the mechanic, doing a diagnosis and repairing of this kind of problem is costly, since the brake is still working fine you may opt to skip the repair at time.
