Welcome to the forum aasyss. Is your ABS light always on as soon as you start the car? The problem could be your ABS relay, but it is more likely to be one of your speed sensors.

Each wheel has a speed sensor that the ABS computer uses to calculate how/when to use the ABS system. Since these sensors are mechanical, and somewhat exposed to the elements, is it not uncommon for them to die or go intermittent after a few years.

If by any (very rare) chance it happens to be your ABS computer that kicked the bucket, I have an extra one I can sell you. Also, if it happens to be your ABS relay (red relay located in your fuse box) I have an extra one of those too.
