Got the dreaded abc problem! Help!

I was stopped at an intersection when all of a sudden; I heard this POP sound that came from underneath the car. As I was about to drive, the ABC red warning light came on and the car lost its suspension stability. I immediately pulled over and stopped the engine, got out of the car and noticed it was leaking abc fluid. It seemed as if it was coming from the transmission area. To prevent any further damage, I never started the car and had it towed home. Now, I know the abc fluid was full since I had checked it the previous day. I don’t think it’s the pump since the oil was not coming from the pump area. If not the pump, what else could it have been??? What else is in that area, near the transmission that can break or (explode)????

Any feedback is appreciated

Sounds like a burst hydraulic line hose.
Update! Just picked up the car. It was the pressure hose. They replaced it per recall and all is fine now. Next time if it explodes, its on my dime:D

BTW, thank you guys for your imput
That's good news. Congrats!

BTW, keep an eye on the ABC fluid level and make certain it is correct to keep the ride and pump proper.
