The ABS lamp in the instrument

The ABS lamp in the instrument cluster momentarily illuminates when the ignition is turned on. If the light does not illuminate during start up, remains on or flashes, the ABS may be disabled and may need to be serviced.

Even when the ABS is disabled and

Even when the ABS is disabled and the ABS light is on, normal braking is still effective. If your BRAKE warning lamp illuminates with the parking brake released, have your brake system serviced immediately.

Using ABS

When hard braking is required, apply continuous force on the brake pedal; do not pump the brake pedal since this will reduce the effectiveness of the ABS and will increase your vehicles stopping distance. The ABS will be activated immediately, allowing you to retain full steering control during hard braking and on slippery surfaces.

However, the ABS does not decrease stopping distance and does not decrease the time necessary to apply the brakes.
