Q about ABS "fusible link" (93 Prelude)`1

Hi to all;

This forum has been helpful to a new Prelude owner! Thanks for that; PZ is usually the first website I visit when I turn on the computer! I searched here and Googled, and found nothing like this, so here I am...

When I was first thinking about buying my 93 Prelude Si 4ws, Greg, my trusted "Honda Guy" said, "...the ABS has usually gone out on these things..." which didn't bother me that much. And yes, my ABS light is constantly on, and I can live with that, BUT:

I was checking fuses the other day, and saw that the 50a fusible link for the ABS motor was just GONE from the fuse box. If I put a new one in (for under four bucks) would that A: Possibly "make it work again;" or B: Cause some horrible damage to something that I don't want to horribly damage?

I just wondered who took it out in the first place and why, you know? Would I hurt anything by putting one in there to see if it does any good?

Thanks to everybody; if the weather holds, I plan to de-grease and clean the engine and engine bay tomorrow. I'll have to take some pictures and post 'em...

RW

You more that likely wont damage anything. Most people when the ABS motor or accumulator starts going out just pull the fuse so that they dont either burn up the motor or so it doesnt make noise any more.

Thanks for the response; that makes a lot of sense. Now, if I decided I wanted to try and use the "blinking ABS light" code to actually diagnose the situation, I'm betting I'd have to have that link IN there to complete the circuit? If you know and have a second, let me know; otherwise, I reckon that it's really not that big of a deal, cosmically speaking...

Thanks again!
