You will need to have the PCM scanned for trouble codes to see why it is in the restricted performance mode. This is the computers way of telling you there is a problem, then it goes into that mode to make sure no damage can be done (in theory. LOL) The ABS light may be related, but your best bet will be to find a shop with the software capable of scanning both the ABS and the PCM to see where to begin fixing it

Oops, sorry. PCM is the Powertrain Control Module, or the computer that controls the engine management system. It also communicates with the trans/ABS and other onboard computers for specific info
