The dealership is saying this must be replaced. They have quoted a price of $1400 dollars to have the problem fixed. We have been driving the 1996 honda prelude and really notice nothing different in the handling of the car, does this have to be replaced

Re: ABS LIGHT STAYS ON
Possibly the pump has packed up.if you still have brakes and they appear to work ok evan without power assistance then remove the bulb and hope its not picked up on the annual mechanical inspection when they do a brake test,other than that it will be fine and should save you being the golden egg layer.

you will need a scan tool to plug into the vehicle and retrieve the fault code then a diagnosis would be able to be determined, important this is done as the ABS is a safety feature. A local Auto Electrician would be able to help, or the dealership.
Your ABS system light stays on in the vehicle because either when you jammed the brakes on you could have blown the sensor fuse take the vehicle to a authorized service place the fuse is like 5-10 dollars is all if it does it again the ABS sensor system is no longer repairable without a new ABS module witch cost big money
You should be using the internet, as well as the dealers parts dept to check prices only
You should also be at the repair shop & in the service bays to see for yourself & ask questions in person, as to how the testing was done & see if anything was even written down, in case you come back for the work to be done
You should have go on road test with a mechanic before you ever leave any vehicle, so they know why your there
Go to Rock Auto.com for the abs sensor price The sensor is 60 to 70.00 so $250 is not right
If the yellow ABS light is on and the red brake light is off, the vehicle is safe to drive. The ABS system is disabled due to a problem the computer noticed. You will need to take it to a repair facility or dealership to have them connect a scan tool to your computer. From there, they can read the trouble code(s) and tell you what the problem is. Then they can quote you a price for the part/repair. If the ABS and red brake warning lamps are on, do NOT drive the vehicle, but have it towed to a shop. This would indicate a major malfunction of the brake system.
check make sure alternator charging battery if alternator fails volts out put 11.0 volts that will set off abs light, if alternator okay have vechicle abs brake system scanned at the volkswagon dealership.if abs light flashing while in motion could have faulty wheel speed sensor.
