It's called Anti-lock Breaking system, it's usually used for treacherous road like rain or snow. What year is your car? I had the same problem with my 2007 Isuzu Rodeo and this was brand new. It turned out to be a wiring problem. The guy that did my oil change accidentally unplugged the switch from the socket. Mine is located very close to the firewall of the SUV in the hood. It's right behind the battery. If it's the wiring, it's just a simple plug-in that you need. If not, i hope you still have the warranty on the car, it should cover the repairs. You usually don't need them anyways if your primary breaking systems works fine. It's just an auxiliary breaking mechanism. Goodluck buddy!

You really need to give more information if you want people to help; make and model, year etc.

ABS simply means auto breaking system. I think there is nothing wrong with your car

Could be a wiring problem. Had the same complaint a few months back and my mech was able to detected that it was a wiring problem that finally got resolved. Consult with your mech and rewire.

You can't repair the light - the SRS issue needs to be resolved.

With regards to the CEL lamp, there's a fault logged in the ECU's memory too, probably sporadic. Each time the battery's disconnected, it clears the memory, till the fault occurs again.

You need to get the car code-read, and the issues resolved. Don't let your mechanic convince you the bulbs can be removed - it WILL stop the illumination, but it won't cure hidden faults.
