If your getting a ABS malfunction, "drive to workshop" you definitely need to take the car in, if the ABS light is on, this means that the ABS (anti-lock braking system) is not in operation. There should be some codes that a dealer could pull out, but I would not ignore this issue. However, the S-Class Mercedes from 92 to 99 (140 chassis) has a computer that if it senses a short, or grounding problem, can turn on the ABS check light as well as the Engine or OBD (On Board Diagnosis) check engine light. If this is the case, you can stop the car, turn off the engine, and restart the engine. If it is an intermittent fault code, the light will go out - at least for a while. However, if it is an ABS failure, the light will come back on immediately when you turn the key and not go out when the engine starts.
