Question about 1997 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1994 Accord ABS light stays on intermittantly after startup.

My 1994 Accord ABS light comes on and goes back off normally when the car is started when cold (after sitting at least 8 hours). When I restart after a shorter stop, the ABS light will stay on until I turn the key off. The brakes seems to act mostly normal otherwise. It has 123k miles and middling maintenance. Any ideas?

ABS went out while racing. I got a replacement from haprecycling for about $150 vs $1000+

just fyi, it's a pain to change. You will need a set of flare wrenchs and crows feet to get it in and out properly. Be VERY careful not to strip or cross thread the gettings.

Reset abs light

If the ABS light is on than there is an active problem with the ABS system. If it comes on and stays on when you start the car it is failing the self test. Repairing the problem will turn out the light.

If it comes on for a couple seconds when you start the car then goes out until you start to move than there is likely a problem with a speed sensor. Again repairing the problem will turn off the light.

Your best bet is to pull the codes from the abs system to see what the problem is then repair it.

ABS SYSTEM of my car is always on

If the light is staying on, there is some problem with the system. the light comes on at startup as it soes a selftest. If it stays on, sounds like you will need a code reader to find out what the issue is. Try your local autoparts house. They often have a code reader and will help you diagnose the issue.

94 accord ABS light on

It is normal for light to lite up at first start and then go out. Sometimes it may stay on a little longer because the sensors on the wheels may be dirty and it take the PCM a little long to find it' circuit. IT is OK.
