Fix it! Get a dealership to read the ABS codes.

First of all Welcome to the BC, we've been waiting a long time for you to join

I agree with Damemorder. Find out what the real deal is with the ABS and fix it. I don't think the next person would offer you nearly what the car is worth if you tried to sell it with the ABS light glowing. How many miles on your Bonny now and what else is troubling it?

The most likely culprits are the wheel speed sensors (integral to the hub/bearing assemblies) and the PMV assembly (very spendy) just below your airbox. The only way to know is to get the codes read, as already stated.

I've been driving for a year with 2 bad wheel speed sensors and a bad PMV.
