Hey guys.. need some help here...

2 days ago my ALB light has been coming on. When I start my car, the light is OFF but once I start driving and drive over 20mph the light comes on.

I jumped the system check wire underneath the carpet on the passenger foot wheel next to the ECU but cannot get any flashing to pull the code off.

What could this be? Is there another system check wire I could jump to pull the codes?

What is a common problem when this light comes on?

I really need to pull the codes but it doesn't flash at all, perhaps my system check wire is dmanged or something or is there an error specific to not flashing?

Thanks guy, really need to figure this out.

Yes, actualy I recently topped it off.

Doesn't the red parking brake light come on instead of the brake fluid is low?

When you initially start the vehicle, the indicator lamp should be ON for a few seconds, then shut OFF. This is to let you know the system is functional.

If the indicator lamp remains ON and no codes are stored, then:
(a) Loose connection at wire harness of the control unit.
(b) Faulty ABS No2 fuse (15amp)
(c) open circuit of one of several wires (you need the manual).

After the above, if symptom persits, need to substitute a known good control unit and recheck the system.

You can use pages 19-50 - 19-52 of the 1992 CPE Service Manual.

Or, take the car to Acura which will spend 30 minutes using the ALB tester and will indicate exactly what is wrong.

Thanks LPB.

I have the same thing written in my 1994 service manual, but I don't see how my wireharness could be lose all of a sudden or there is an open in the wire or something. I also checked the fuse which it seems fine.

I had to get a second opinion.

I will then check the ALB control unit and the harnesses that plug into it. It's not a pleasure accessing that unit as I got too much stereo equipment in my trunk tha tmust be removed :(

I'll try swapping fuses around just in case as well.
