Default 960 ABS Light

So tonight I was driving home when my ABS light came on. I didn't have any problems when I got back, but in the future, is this something I should be concerned about and how can I get it turned off? Thanks!

You need to check the codes to see what is causing the ABS light. It could be something as simple as a wheel sensor. Your 95 should have the OBD1 port with LED so you can do this on your own:

I kind of know about the OBD1 thing. In the meantime, is the car still driveable?

It is perfectly driveable, but if the light stays on you most likely have no ABS function while the brakes are OK... Go to a muddy or grassy or sandy area and try the ABS to see what you have in a way of antilock action--it doesn't take much. And do run those OBD codes to get an answer...
