    Anytime that your ABS lamp is on the ABS system is off. Your brakes will work normally, you will not have any ABS assistance if you apply the brakes firmly, the brakes can and will lock up in a panic situation when the ABS is off.

    You need to have the ABS system scanned to pull (read) any codes that are stored to be able to begin diagnostics. Many auto parts supply houses will read codes for free or you can pay a repair facility to check the ABS system for you.
