ABS light

Hi guys,

Went out this morning in my car and noticed the ABS light came on and stayed on. First time this has happened.
I took the chance to test it out in the snow and right enough the ABS no longer kicks in.

I thought it must have something to do with the severe weather conditions we have been having but it has now just come on after the temperatures have been positive for the past day.

My headlight leveling light is also coming on and off occasionally.

More concerned about the ABS.
Car is 06 STi - anything I can check or does it need to go to garage?

Thanks,
David
