ABS Light came on today
 
Hi, I was driving to work today when my ABS light came on after a few miles. I have a few questions about this.

1, am I safe to drive it home from work? I understand that the light being on just means the ABS isn't active but normal brakes work fine.
2, what's the best / cheapest way to get it checked out? I've checked my fluids and the brake fluid seems to be full. Probably not related, but the coolant was below the minimum level.

Any advance welcome.

It's a Focus LX Saloon 2004 (old model).

Cheers

The ABS disables when something goes wrong with it, whereupon the brakes work just like a system with no ABS.................probably a wheel sensor gone bad.........
