There are many parts involved in ABS. The most common reason for this is a faulty wheel speed sensor. There is one sensor for each wheel. They are mounted near the wheel bearings and get exposed to all the elements. Other causes could be a faulty ABS module, wiring, or solenoid in the hydraulic unit. The only way to find out is to scan the computer to see what the trouble code is. Have a mechanic diagnose your ABS light so that you can have the correct repairs made on your car.
