Q: ABC Malfunction Light is on

The ABC Malfunction Light is on.

A: The power steering pump is the most common ...

The power steering pump is the most common failure for the ABC light being on. The pump has an internal pressure sensor that will indicate when the pump pressure is below specifications. I would recommend having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic scan the system and diagnose any codes for the ABC system for you. They will also be able to inspect your power steering fluid for any leaks and make any repairs necessary to resolve the issue.
