Hello - yes, your Nissan Sunny has Anti-lock Brakes System. It would appear that yours is inoperative, and the ABS light in the dash cluster has burned out, or one or more fuses have blown. Check for blown fuses first. Next, I recommend a brake inspection ASAP performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
