HI. You may, temporairly, shutdown the code by pulling the negivtive battery cable for five to ten minutes. This will reset the cpu, but the light will illuminate again if the neccessry repairs are not applied to correct the issues with the ABS systme. The issue here will, more than likely, bewith one or all of the speed sensors that are located on each wheel axle assembly. These sensors work in unison to insure optimal operation during a skid, or hard breaking situation. In order to isolate the problem, you will need to have a diagnostic scan run on the on-board CPU system. Once the codes are pulled, the read-out will direct you to the actual location of the sensor, and the repairs needed. Once the repairs are made, the CPU ABS alert will be reset automatically.

Best and most honest suggestion. Take it to a brake shop. ABS is your ANTI LOCK BRAKES, you want to figure out what has caused the malfunction, and you wouldn't want to go without properly repairing them. If you hit the brakes hard and your ABS system is not functioning or malfunctioning you may just end up locking up the tires and ending up in a worse wreck then you would have with controlled slowing down and being able to miss the wreck.. please for your own safety get em checked and or fixed. unless you have experance in repairing ABS its not worth the personal safety risk to you and others.

SOURCE: My ABS light on my 1996 Honda Prelude is on. How

the light will only turn off when the ABS system fault that caused the module to turn the light on is repaired, to do this u need to have the dealer test the system for fault codes, most likely one of the four wheel speed sensors will be defective.

All electronic accessories work when key is in


test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

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.
