    brakes are good. I will take it ti autozone to get it checked out. I dont think It's the ABS though.

    It may be your traction control light, if it's NOT the check engine light. Take the car to an AutoZone or O'Reilly's and have the codes read. WRITE THEM DOWN, and report back here. Chances are, you have a bad ABS sensor in the front brake pads, which will require a front brake pad replacement. What condition are your brakes in?

Well, get the codes read, and, why do you not think it's the ABS? Have you had work done there recently?

this is a brake pad warning light. Either the pads are worn or the sensor wiring is damaged.
