I have a 2002 civic Ex coupe with over 200.000 on it.i bought 8t from a roadside lot and the ABS light was on from the time I bought it but it doesn't go away..does anyone ever had this problem before or knows what causing it?

If your brake fluid is very low, the abs light will come on. Check your reservoir and assuming its low add some proper type brake fluid to at least the mid level and see if that turns it off. If that is the issue do check your brakes as you either have a leak somewhere, or your pads are on their last legs. If you are not familiar with brakes have a someone who is look at the system. Good luck with it.

Check the DTC for the ABS to determine the fault in the system.

The light can be reset. Check out youtube videos on this. If you take out a seat or something and turn the key it will trip the light. So reset it and see if it comes back. The 10-20 dollar ob2 scanners don't reset the abs light but you should get one anyway to scan for and clear codes.

Hey ,mqAcuraEl. Thanks for the rundown you gave me but my break fluid is fine,pads are ok, not sure on the shoes at the back but I will check them when I have time and also, there are no leaks anywhere either if there was any I would have seen it when I move from where I park.. let me ask this question. I jacked up my car and started it ,put it in 1st gear and what I saw was strange to me. I found out that the right front wheel is spinning faster than the left front wheel. Is that normal? I have never seen anything like that before with my 07 tc..please let me know what you think.
