Question about 1993 Honda Prelude
The car was parked up for approximatly 7-8 months, now when I drive it after going betwen 100-300 meters the ABS light comes on, the distance depends upon how warm or how long I have been parked.
Normally what you find in this case, is that the sensors at the wheels &/or there reference points get rusted or dirty from sitting and don't send a proper signal. If you have the ability or resources to find them & clean both, on each wheel, you may save yourself some money. Let me know if your up to it, and I'll try to give a brief description of what to look for, and how to clean them. It involves jacking it up & pulling wheels. You may even get lucky enough to hit the carwash, and spray in behind your wheels, to dislodge dirt etc that may be causing your problem, but don't get hopes up too much on that, but it has happened.

By the sound of it, the ABS is showing failure, this can be due to moisture in the brake fluid, you may need to get the brakes fully bled to remove any moisture. Once the car warms up, the manifold vacuum is kicking in for your brakes to work properly, and this is usually when problems show up. Could also be that there is a vacuum leak somewhere between engine manifold and the brake assist unit. The ABS is simply lighting up to say that something isnt right. If bleeding the brakes doesnt fix it, the next step is to search the rubber vacuum line/s between the power brake unit and the engine intake manifold. If there is no problem there, could simply be an electrical fault that would be a 20 minute job for an auto electrician.
