ABS = Anti-lock Braking System. There may be a problem with the ABS system causing the brakes to apply when driving.

does it typically cause a smell? because my car has a smell when it happens, and also my ABS light isn't on

If the brakes were dragging they would have the distinctive hot brake smell. I am wondering if something else is causing the proble. Can you describe the smell and where it seems to be coming from. Is the smell noticed more inside or outside the vehicle?

i smell it from the outside
