ABS light on."repair cost info"

My abs light is on and I am looking for people who have had this problem. I read the manual and I know it has probably gone to normal brakes. ( My question is about how much should the repair cost. Or is it something that I can do myself.) Thanks, D. Mann

Check your brake fluid level first. It could just be low.

Well, my ABS unit actually went kaput @ 98K miles. Had that verified by my mechanic, whom I've used sine '89.

Had the unit disconnected. Amber light is on. Long as I don't slam on the brakes, I'm fine. Have new pads all the way around anyway.

My question: Can these units be rebuilt? Mine is NOT leaking or using up brake fluid.

Because I am hearing some real scary replacement prices of $1500.00 incl labor.

A USED one can still run around $650.00-700.00. Part alone.

Of course, even a mechanic you trust would love to sell you a new unit and make that $1.5K.

Love to hear what others here have done. I know I am not alone on the ABS unit failing. From what I've read, most just bypass it like I did because of the huge replacement cost.

The ABS has its own diagnostic. Access the computer and retrieve the code. There are over a dozen reasons why the indicator lamp is activated. It could be something as easy as disengaging the parking brake to you need a new unit. If you cannot access the computer or don't want an independent to work on the car, Acura can perform an ALB function test in under an hour. This test will tell you exactly what the problem is.

My ABS light has been on for almost four out of the five years I have owned my car. Finally had some time to install some drilled/slotted brembo rotors I purchased last August, and magically the ABS light went off! And this was after a mechanic told me it would cost $1300 for a new sensor! I had gotten used to the light being on all the time, and now its weird that my dashboard display is normal! This is the first time nothing is wrong with my car in four years!

Since I wasn't going to invest 1k into my car to fix the ABS that has been on for about 8 months. I just simply removed the bulb. My brakes feel the same as when I bought it.

My ABS light comes on once my transmission shifts into 2nd gear. Any Ideas? One mech said, could be a bad axle.... Well, ummm, yea, I must say, my right axle is leaking fluid some where but you can't here it clicking when turning unless you drive 1 mph. I'm going to buy a new axle and will see if this will help.
