The computer has detected a problem with a component in the ABS system. It turns the light on and disables the ABS system and turns the light on to inform the driver to have the ABS system inspected and fault codes diagnosed. I recommend you take it in and have it diagnosed.

Check first the brake switch, located under your dash. a broken metal strip is always the culprit. Change the switch and the light will go away. Best of luck.
