    abs fluid, did you check that. that light comes on for a lot of reasons, do you have a manual? check pads and rotors. if all is ok then you may have a problem with the unit itself. take it to honda or a reputable place to have it checked out.

    Also check all the ABS sensors. On the 93 Integra, the bolts that hold the sensors like to work themselves loose and when they got loose enough the sensor would not read properly and the ABS light would come on.

    I had a car that did this, your ABS system may have some kinks in it. basicially (im almost sure) the light means that ABS is currently not functioning. Could be sensors, fluid, relays.

    You all try driving in the northeast without ABS. I got used to it in the civ, but people think im a retard when I forget and start pumping the brakes on someone elses car. hehe.

    Most cars did not have ABS until well into the 90's what do you think people did before then. Remember people used to drive heavy cars with 4 wheel drum brakes and no power booster everyday in all conditions ABS is not important.
