Was the ABS light on prior to having the brakes replaced ? Anti-lock brakes , although tied-in with the conventional brakes , are seperate.

Yes, the light was on when I got the car from my father-in-law. he said he repaired the brakes one to two years earlyer.

So if I'm understanding this correctly, the new brakes are 2 years old and the ABS light has been on for the same ?
