Dear rickaleks-- That warning light is meant to tell you that something is wrong with your ABS. Unfortunately the warning system often gives you a false positive. The thing to do is to take it to a good mechanic or dealer. They will plug it into their diagnostic system and you will soon know whether you have bad brakes or just a false alarm. Good luck from Bovan.
