Default Disabling ABS

disabling ABS for snowy (not icey) conditions.

When I'm driving on fresh snow, I'd rather be able to lock my tires up
and build up some snow ahead of the tires than to let the ABS pulsate
and cause the tires to slip along on top of the snow.

Would pulling a fuse or unplugging the module work to turn off ABS?
Would this hurt my 96 Accord?

maybe buy some winter tires instead, or some that have some traction so the
abs can work.

Or failing that just keep driving on your bald tires, and perhaps
disconnnect your break lights while your at it

Are you really contimplating disconnecting the ABS?
Why would you want to defeat a system that has great benefits?

it has benefits in some circumstances for "average" drivers, but the
situation the op described is /precisely/ the kind of situation where
abs is indeed undesirable. read the owners manual for weasel worded
disclaimers about abs not being ideal for all situations.

I am not an average driver. I'm a control freak. I like being in
full control of my vehicle. In addition to wanting to be in full
control of my brakes, I like to be in full control of my transmission.
One of the main criteria I look for when buying a car is that it must
be a manual transmission.

So, If you think I'm an idiot, that's fine. I know that I have the
skill to handle a car in an emergency stop without ABS.

So, does anyone know: Is there an easy way to disable ABS without
causing any damage to the car?

No... I don't think you're an idiot. I just think that maybe you may be
misinformed. If you think you have superhero skills... and can
outperform the ABS in an emergency situation... then I question your
rationale.
