The ABs light in the dash comes on periodically, for no apparent reason. What does this mean? Do I need to fix something, or is the light just giving out? It seems to happen when I turn of the car and start it again within 5 minutes, or when go at a higher speed than normal on the highway (85mph+). Any help would be nice.

first check and see if your ABS still works. If it does then its prolly a loose speed sensor.

You may have a sensor failing. With a code reader you can see what the car is telling you. The wheel sensors are fairly easy to replace.
