Alright, hit me up with the parts and my last conclusion on the abs is possibly a new ebcm.. thats my last and final theory... if that theory is found and detected then i would like to fix it, but im close in going to the Honda dealer and check it out for me..

For an ABS problem it usually comes down to a computer scan. What year is it? I didn't go back and read the post. A bad wheel bearing will also impact ABS.

But like others said, check the stuff you can first....wiring, brakes....etc.

As for the temp gauge not working....some cars have multiple temp sensors, but replace the coolant temp sensor. Also, if you have air in the coolant system it can cause a bad reading, but usually you will still get some kind of reading, still it's worth a try.

94 civic ex.. when i check it by jumping wires, nothing came up. just only the SRS light flashing constantly.. but not the abs.. im thinking the wss might be dirty and must be cleaned out.. i researched alldata in my college to find some possibility.. it told me it may have a shortage some where in the abs system, open wire, wss.. if none of the above, EBCM might be the cause. < this was a summary but i do have the print outs of what might be the cause of the abs light on..

coolant is filled up, seems its leaking in the lower hose next to the drain plug of the radiator. also lower hose is not getting warm like the upper hose is. if thats the case why my temp gauge is not working then it must be the thermostat not opening in regular temp.

hopefully it is!!

SRS light is on.. my stupidity pulled the wrong fuse and pulled out the airbag one.. thinking it was the left low beam light, reason for it went out on me one day so i was making sure it wasnt the fuse...

im trying to figure out how to delete it now..

This write-up will work for almost all Acura's and Honda's.

You will need:
A screwdriver
2 paperclips
Not be colorblind
An IQ of at least 5 :lol:

Okay, first things first, if you think you can work in a somewhat tight space and are coordinated with your hands and eyes, then ignore the next sentence. If you want more room, remove the dash panel right beneath the steering wheel.

Next, we are going to look for a YELLOW plastic cable with a YELLOW connector right around the fuse box. Dont get confused, becuase there may be more than 3 of these types of wires. All yellow encased wires and connectors are part of the SRS system. The easiest way to recognize it will be that it plugs into a dummy (A fake) connector, and that it has two pins. It will look like the one below:
http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/3491/img0625sb9.jpg

http://img115.imageshack.us/img115/3126/img0626ko8.jpg

Okay, once you find it and have taken it out of the dummy socket your going to need your two paper clips.
I want you to unfold them, leaving one end unstraightened, and make them look like this:
http://img381.imageshack.us/img381/1983/img0628eb4.jpg

This is so that you can easily rotate the paper clips into, and out of, contact.
http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/9117/img0632zq2.jpg

Now for the fun part.
A quick tip that makes the proccess easier is: If the light is on, hold your clips together, if its off, hold them apart.

Hold the paper clips together http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/9117/img0632zq2.jpg

And now turn on the ignition, DONT START THE CAR. The SRS light will come on for about 6 seconds and then will go off, quickly disconnect the wires when the light goes off.

After about 4 seconds the SRS light will come on again, quickly hold the clips together again.

It will go off again and you will quickly disconnect the clips. This time after 4 seconds the light shoudl blink twice.

Turn off the ignition and pull out your paper clips.

Wait 10-20 seconds and then turn your car on, the SRS light will pop on for 6 seconds as is normal and then turn off.

Congratulations!
:admin2:
You just reset your SRS light and saved yourself $80 from having the dealer do it!

If the light stays on like it was previously then repeat the proccess. If it still stays on then there is something broken/disconnected in your SRS system.
