Default 1996 Accord ABS disable

Searched google and this group and couldn't find out how to do it. If I
missed it, feel free to link me to a spot that describes how.

I know the pros and cons of disabling ABS. Please don't preach about
why doing so is dangerous, etc.

That said, how would I go about disabling ABS on my 1996 Honda Accord
EX? Thanks in advance.

I won't preach to you. But I will state that if you disable the ABS in
your vehicle, your vehicle will not be legal on the road.

A lot of Accords and Odyssey's are illegal on the road already. Search
tegger.com to see if the (disable) answer is in there.
It's not always that hard to just fix the ABS. I got mine going without
spending the $1,000.

I never have received a citation for operating an illegal vehicle on the
road, Jim. I don't have the time to look up the section of the MVA now, but
if you want to look for the appropriate section here is the link for the
site; http://www.gov.ns.ca/legislature/leg...tes/motorv.htm .

Here (as in many jurisdictions) all equipment on a vehicle must be
functional or else the vehicle is not capable of passing a motor vehicle
safety inspection. At which point the driver will receive a citation and the
vehicle will have to be towed to a repair facility.

a citation is a reference, like "show me where you got that information".

searching that link for "abs" or "a.b.s." or "a. b. s." or "antilock" or
"anti-lock" or "anti lock" shows nothing. the relevant braking section
reads:

***

"Brakes

181 (1) Every motor vehicle other than a motorcycle, when operated upon
a highway shall be equipped with brakes adequate to control the movement
of and to stop and to hold the vehicle, having two separate means of
application, each of which means shall be effective to apply brakes to
at least two wheels, and so constructed that no part which is liable to
failure shall be common to the two.

(2) Every motorcycle shall be equipped with at least one brake.

(3) Every motorcycle shall be equipped with a braking system capable of
being operated on not fewer than two wheels where the motorcycle was
originally equipped with such a braking system or where the motorcycle
was sold new after the first day of June, 1972.

(4) All such brakes shall be maintained in good working order and shall
conform to regulations which may from time to time be made by the
Department, and any peace officer, or any officer appointed to carry out
this Act may at any time inspect, or cause to be inspected the brakes of
any motor vehicle on the highway, and may, if the brakes do not conform
to the regulations of the Department, require the driver of the motor
vehicle to proceed forthwith to make or to have brakes made to comply
with those regulations.

(5) Any combination of motor vehicle, trailer, semi-trailer or other
vehicle shall be equipped with brakes upon one or more of the vehicles
adequate to stop the combination of vehicles within the distance
specified for motor vehicles under regulations that may be made by the
Department, and the Department may, by regulations, require any type,
class or weight of trailer or semi-trailer to be equipped with brakes to
be approved by the Department.

(6) The Minister, with the approval of the Governor in Council, may make
regulations respecting the standards for hydraulic brake fluid and
making it an offence to sell, offer for sale, or possess hydraulic brake
fluid that does not conform to the standards. R.S., c. 293, s. 181."

***

so again, it would be good if you can share where you got the "illegal"
info from. thanks.

Only want to know how to do it, not whether someone approves of it or
not. Thanks.

Thanks. I ran across that very informative Tegger FAQ before, but I was
hoping for a more permanent fix- a "fool with it for an hour and be
done" type of fix rather than an "every time I start the car" kind of
fix.
