Does Your Car Want You To Have Good Abs?

This warning light came on and I was wondering if I should start doing crunches, but it is much more serious than that. The anti-lock braking system started kicking in and it even caused noise on the AM radio when I touched the brakes. I checked with a mechanic and learned that this can be an indicator of a wheel bearing that is beginning to wobble, so I scheduled maintenance right them. Turns out this was just a faulty sensor, and that is a relief, but don't put off checking your car if one of the warnings lights up. A wheel that decides to lock up at 65 mph could be fatal. 'nuff said.
