The ALB activated lamp is indicating that the system has determined the existance of a fault. The lamp being ON is to indicate to you that the ALB system is now on default; it has shut itself off. You need to tap the computer to determine exactly what is wrong or go to Acura and in 30 min or so using the ALB tester they will tell you exactly what has malfunctioned. Common problems are low fluid in reservoirs, pressure switch, wheel sensors. The othe DIY thing to do is to remove the 3 15 amp fuses for about 20 sec and reinstall. This will reset the system. Also make sure that the parking brake is fully off as this will also trigger an ALB fault. Last, but not least, BUY A HELM....PLEASE.
If the brake fluid reservoirs are full try this quick fix. Remove the positive or negative battery cable and touch it to the correspond-ing battery post. This electrical "spike" is meant to reset, but not damage, the "brain".
