It means that you would have no ABS to help you if you lock a wheel up, just normal braking.  I wouldn't do it for more than a quick test.  In this case he doesn't have to drive the van anyway.  

You are going to cause multiple codes while you are testing so it's best to have VCDS available.  But the OP already has many incorrect dash lights and probably codes.   He also lives in Ecuador so he might not have too many handy garages for a more studied diagnosis!
