anti-lock light coming on

93 lumina eurosport...

when first starting the car the light goes off, then about 5 minutes later the anti lock light on the dash comes on...on slick roads ive tried to see if it would work and the brakes locked.....but they do not lock in the first 5 minutes of startup...any hints if this is a easy fix? or where to start? if its a costly one i wont get it done cause ive never even used them until this but i really want to know if this will cause brakes to fail....any reason i should worry about this? thanx, Sal

You would need

to have the codes checked for the abs system.A abs light being on will not cause the base brake system to fail but could be a sign of a base brake problem.Make sure the brake fluid is full and if it is have the codes checked.If it's low check for leaks and repair as needed.
