When your abs light is on, your anti lock brake features do not function. I recommend you have your brake system inspected for further diagnostics.

As long as the ABS light is on, this part of your braking system is turned off by the jeeps computer.
You still have brakes, just no ABS.
I recommend getting your brakes looked at by a trained auto technician.

The brakes are safe but the additional safety on slippery surfaces is not. You need a professional to check it.

There could be something wrong with your ABS module/system. This is usually an expensive issue. Your brake system will function properly but you won't have the ABS option anymore.

Your base braking system will still have normal operation (as long as the red brake light is not on). Your abs system may not work. There are many causes for the abs light to come on. Your best bet is to take it to a shop and have it properly diagnosed. A true scan tool is need for this. A generic code reader will not go into the abs module.
