    The antilock braking system is a separate system from the regular brake system. The antilock system can go out while the service brakes work fine. If that happened, it would not affect the regular braking performance; but the anti lock feature would not function properly in a panic stop or when stopping rapidly on wet or slippery roads. The light is likely to have come on because of a defective wheel speed sensor or a problem in the electronic ABS controls. It could also indicate that the ABS fuse is blown.
