That means the computer is seeing a malfunction and you need to have the codes read to find out what it saw.

ABS sets a "C" code. You would have to get a local shop read the exact code, while autoparts stores will scan codes for free, they can only scan "P" (powertrain) codes.

Most likely a wheel sensor, but you will have to get it scanned to verify.
