Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
ABS = Anti-lock Braking System. It means there's a malfunction of some sort. It could be the ABS pump, one of the ABS speed sensors located on the axles just behind the steering knuckles, etc. Your best bet it to head somewhere (garage, dealership, Advance Auto) that can read the code the ABS system is throwing. This way you'll know exactly what's wrong with it.
As for it being a big deal.. well the ABS system won't function when it detects an error. What this means is if you have to jam on your brakes, the tires are going to lock up and squeel to a stop. With the ABS functioning, the computer will pump/release the brakes so the wheels don't lock up, giving you more steering control in the stop
