TODAY WE ARE TALKING: ABS WARNING LIGHT
The ABS WARNING light indicates that your ABS is not functioning properly. When the ignition is initially turned on, this light should illuminate briefly, indicating the system is fully functional, however, if it illuminate while driving this indicates that there is a problem. The regular braking is still functioning, but without ABS. Have your ABS system repaired by your service team as soon as possible.

When your warning light is illuminated, it is usually an electrical problem, defective power relay for the ABS pump of module or low brake fluid in your ABS system. The Subaru of Niagara service team has the expertise to find the culprit for this warning light and rectify it quickly to have you back on the road safely in no time.
