Question: How much does it cost to repair ABS?

I recently got word that my ABS system does not work? There is no warning light or anything that states this, but the previous owner just told me about it when I asked. I was driving in a snow storm and I slid right through the stop sign, even though I gave myself enough room to stop. I thought I had ABS so I just kept my foot on the brake. It made the noise ABS does yet i just continued to skid. Later thinking my ABS did not work I tried pumping the brakes but then it locked up on me.
