The ABS light comes on when the computer inside the vehicle registers a fault within the ABS brake system. The ABS system has probably been disabled. It therefore registers a code and turns on the light. Engine speed is also controlled via the computer. The two systems should not be connected. A fault in the PCM/ECM could be the problem. This can only be diagnosed by a tech with the proper electronic testing system.
