The ABS light is a symbol on the dashboard that notifies the driver when the ABS kicks in when braking and goes off when the brake is released. In modern automobiles, when a vehicle with ABS is turned on, the light, usually yellow, or orange glows as part of a system check. If the ABS indicator light remains lighted after the system check or is not in use, it means that there is a problem with the vehicle's brake system. To simply put, the onboard computer has detected a potential ABS problem, and the ABS is no longer operating. If you ignore the ABS light, safely stopping your automobile may become impossible. You may avoid this problem that would otherwise degrade your vehicle's performance by taking a proactive approach to ABS maintenance.
