If your ABS light is on, the car is telling you there is a problem with your ABS system. Your abs system and the regular brake system are 2 diff things. And if your ABS light is on, your ABS in not working at all. You need to get it to your local Kia dealership.

as it says in the manual take it to the dealer if this happens, something isn't right.
