I am assuming that you are talking about you ABS light for your antilock braking system. You will need a slightly advanced computer scan tool to read the codes stored in the computer. From there, additional diagnosis can be performed. From experience, it is likely a wheel speed sensor, but it could be something more severe. I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the ABS light and replace any part that is causing trouble.
