Question about 1997 Honda Accord
Hi I have a 1997 Honda Accord Aerodeck. Recently the ABS light on the dash started to come on. Now after driving for only a few seconds the light comes on and stays on. I have been told it could be dirt on the Chapter rings (i believe that's what they're called). Any assistance would be great as I'm away from home in France at the moment and am a bit concerned about the efficiency of the brakes.
To my knowledge, the ABS light coming on indicates that the system has been disabled for some unknown reason(s). This would then translates to your vehicle having only standard/conventional power brakes, but brakes you will still have.
The correct procedure would be to have your ABS Brake Code scanned and interpreted.
The ABS warning light could be triggered by faulty sensor in any of the wheels or damaged wiring/connector or worst case scenario defective ABS module, pump or motor. Alternately, you try to fill the reservoir up. Normally, there would be a rubber cap andanother plastic cap under it. Add Honda brake fluid with the engine running. It would be preferable to do it slowly as to allow the air bubbles to escape. Additionally, pls check for any sign of leakage. If for some reason it would considerable fluid has to be added, it may be necessary to bleed the system. Pls reference this page for the procedures.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
