your abs should engage at this time. you are going to have to get the computer scanned for codes. autozone and some other auto parts places will do it for free. then post back here if you still need help.

Yes, hitting the breaks on ice was the ABS system kicking in. The engine light, you will have to go somewhere to have the computer scanned for engine codes. This would tell you what needs attention to be fixed.
