ABS warning light.

Hi guys, this may be the wrong area to be posting this in but im still not entirely sure where certian things should be posted. I have an 2008 e92 335i and recently i keep getting the ABS warning light everytime i turn on the car and the warning light stays on as i continue to drive it. I read online what this ABS light means and it said that it has to do with the stability control and brakes failing. It kinda scared me at first but the car seems to drive fine. I do understand that the cold weather can mess up the system and make warning lights pop up but the stability control and brakes failing is a scary thing. Any sort of advice or tips or just anything you guys can tell me is much appreciated. Thanks!!

no one here knows why you have ABS light on, you have to hook it up to computer and get error code which can be done at shop

Oh okay I thought it might have been like a general thing like change your brakes or something. Thanks

nope, ABS has shit lots of sensors and main ABS unit, one of those goes bad and you have ABS light. Code will tell you whats wrong, can be just ABS sensor on one of 4 wheels.
