Show them the ABS module, it's on the left hand side of the engine bay. Look for something that looks like an aluminum block with 6 hard lines coming from it. It doesn't say ABS, but does have LF/RF/LR/RR on it. (At least it's like that on my 2003 Civic Si)

Re: Anti lock brakes
Often the vehicle's VIN number will have a digit that indicates whether you have ABS or not, and they can enter your VIN number to see whether you do. I'm surprised they didn't try this, but it may not be the case with Honda. If you have ABS, there will be a wheel speed sensor at each corner of the car, plugged into the wheel hub. You could check for that.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes. The anti lock brake system has a fault. It could be as easy as a wire knocked off a wheel sensor or something else causing the light to come on. If you had to slam on the brakes now, the car would skid out of control. That could be devastating. If the insurance company found out you were ignoring the problem, they could refuse to cover the damage. Get it fixed quickly. The car is definitely unsafe.
You can. Of course the ABS portion of the brakes will not work, but the brakes will manually function just fine. You will just have to rely on your foot to control brake function. I wouldn't tell my insurance company I did it. I completely removed my ABS from a 95 Suburban. The early GM anti skid systems were pretty bad. Not sure about your year.
Try to locate the unique code number that will unlock the theft-protected audio system on your 2003 Honda Civic. It probably was imprinted on an anti-theft identification card that you should have received when you acquired the car. The code was printed on a document that came with your owner's manual packet
If you do not have the code, you will need to track down the audio system's serial number. In the case of the 2003 Honda Civic, finding the serial number may require seeking assistance from a Honda dealer. The dealer should be able to determine the audio system's special code number so you can reset the radio. With some newer Honda Civic models, the serial number can be retrieved electronically from the radio.
If you are able to locate the serial number of your 2003 Honda Civic's audio system without a dealer's assistance, you can obtain the special code by going online to the Honda Web site. You must first provide specific information to prove you own the car. For instance, you will need the Civic's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and the audio system's serial number.
When you know what the audio system's special code number is, use the preset buttons on the car radio to punch in the digits. This should reset the audio system, enabling you to resume using the radio and the CD player.

It's different for each individual car.
If you go to your local Honda Dealership they can look it up for you.
They will need the VIN to get the code for your specific car.
Bring your insurance card, registration, and photo ID to prove ownership.
Be sure not to write it down inside the car.
Not the owner's manual or anything else kept inside the car.
The radio code is a form of anti theft.
Keep the code at home or on you computer.
You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.
To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.
The only way to get the radio code is from your Honda dealer. THis is an anti-theft issue, and you must have your VIN number to get the code. Often it is written down in the cover of your owner's manual too!
If the car has anti lock brakes open the bleeder screw to allow pressure to escape as you use a C-clamp to depress to piston back into the caliper make sure to lock down bleeder after the caliper piston has been depressed.
Yes you can,dont forget to open the master cylinder cover as the fluid will go back to the cylinder,just watch out for the sensor near the caliper it looks like a black cable pointing at the back of the rotor,if this helps please vote me a fix ya
