Is it possible that it says ABS? not ABC? ABS is you anti lock brake system. Usually means that your brakes will function but you wont have anti love brakes which help distribute braking power to each wheel to assist with leveled braking and prevent spinning out. I have had vehicles where I have driven with my ABS out and its possible but you should get it looked at by a mechanic...If I were you i would check your fuse box for a blown fuse or relay for the ABS before shelling the cash out at a dealer or a mechanic...its usually just a faulty sensor or a blow fuse or relay.
2 concern for you when check engine light comes on your TCL (traction control) is disabled,so you get the light,and if TCL is disabled so is the ABS (anti lock brakes) you first step is get the Check engine light code,If it was just a TCL light on the ABS code will need to be gathered,You need a scan tool
when the abs light or any other light flashes it means that theres a problem in that particuler system normaly on the abs system you will not feel no differance because the anti lock brake system works only if the hit the brake hard it would not allow the brake system to lock up any of the wheels thata why the name says it all ANTI LOCK BRAKE but you should get it check by a mechanic with a scanner he will tell you were is the fault good luck
I do believe that is your anti-lock brake system warning light. the only way to have this system checked is to have a mechanic put a scanner/computer on it to check the faults. You can check your anti-lock fuse and relays to make sure they are good.

when the abs light comes on your anti-lock brakes will not work. the car is still safe to drive. you may have a bad wheel sensor. the tcl light is traction control. Advance auto or autozone can scan your car for free if they have the right tool. good luck
