Just call in any garage, they might laugh at you but they won't charge for telling you it must be the power steering reservoir.

Oh, meant to say, ABS warning light. Comes on when I go over 60mph. Anything serious I should worry about?

ABS - Anti-Lock Brake System

Exactly what it sounds like, stops your brakes from locking up. Sensors mounted on the hub(for front) pick up a singal similar to a wave and they have a pattern. Its given off by a special ring ont he driveshaft.

Either one of the sensors is faulty or the ring is at fault.

My money would be on a fractured ring, as a faulty sensor (from my experiences) show up at any speeds. Where as a fractured ring on the driveshaft is only shown at certain speeds!

It's best to get anything brake related checked out ASAP, Can't put a price on safety of you or your family in the car.
