It's cheap to fix.Look for a program called digimotolite and a cable called elm327 on ebay.Will cost you less than £10 and once connected you can erase this fault.Hence your mot passed.Please rate this solution.

The ABS light can be on for different reason.
sometimes a bad speed sensor on one of the wheels can trigger the ABS light, in that case the repair may range between £100 and £200, depending on the garage.
The ABS module, or the entire braking sytem may be faulty, in that case it may not be worth repairing due to the age of the car.
You do not know if the repair will be expensive until the mechanic test the ECU/ABS modules and inspect the braking system.

It's a common problem with the civic's, the speedo is bad, you can try findind one in the bone yard but it may be bad to, the dealer is expensive, In my 95 civic I turn on my tom tom and it has the speed on it, all the other gauges work fine, the odometer will work fine, just the speedo.

I have a 56 plate 1.4 civic and it is pulling to the left!


If the steering saft was broken you woudnt even be able turn at all, without looking at the car, it could be a number of things, cv joint ,wheelbearings, struts, even the rim might be out balance or alignment, stabilizer bar bushing could be worn out, it would be best to take it to honda dealer to confirm the problem, but i dont understand why it would pass MOT with a broken steering shaft!
