I don't have the same kind of car, but in my car it meant that I needed to add brake fluid.

To be on the safe side, I would take it to a oil changing place and let them check ot out for you. It probably would cost $10. Or call the nearest dealership that sells acura and ask their service manager

You most likely have a dirty sensor. OR You need to have your brakes redone.

Idiot lights come on for a reason.....abs means your anti locking brake system......dont ignore it......take it to Midas or a good brake shop and have them check the pads and shoes and hardware...Usually brake shops do not charge to check out brakes....or it could be a malfunctioning idiot light.....Midas can check that too.(NO: I do not work for Midas!!!!)******

abs- anti lock braking system, normally only comes on when your abs modulator is bad. i would take it to your nearest acura dealership and have them use the honda diagnostic system to check the code that comes up with the light. most dealerships do charge a diagnostic fee ( normally around $45) but even if you did decide to take it to an independent shop, they are going to tell you the same thing that the dealership is going to tell you and then you still have top go to the dealership and pay the diagnosis fee so they can look at it. most parts in the abs system are factory only. it just might be easier.

i don't have the same car, but i have a honda accord, which is pretty similar because your car is made by the same japanese company. Anyway when your ABS light comes on it means that u have a dirty/loose brake sensor, or that your ABS system is out and needs to be replaced.
