Just recently I had my coolant system repaired and now my ABS light has come on. I haven't had any problems with my brake system and was wondering if it could have been damaged during the engine work?

    I don't believe so. Get the ABS system coded out. You can't do this at a auto parts house. You need a real scan tool that can read ABS codes. When you get the codes post them here to help you more.
