    I have a 93 Honda Accord. I just got front rotors, front pads and
    right front calipers installed. I drove out of the mechanics garage,
    and the ABS light came on. Also, everytime that I press the brakes,
    the ABS seems to be kicking in( I can feel the brake pedal kick back,
    the noise of ABS, etc).
    I asked the mechanic and he said "just drive it for 2 to 3 days and it
    should be fine"
    Please help.

    Think about what ABS does. It stutters the brakes when they are
    applied and the syatem senses that one wheel is not turning as fast
    as the others. Now your wheels are turning at the same speed, but the
    system thinks otherwise.

    Gee, would a misplaced wheel speed sensor cause that?
    And you just had some work done on the brakes on those wheels?
    I think you need a better mechanic

    If your mechanic's lips were moving when he said that to you, he was
    lying. The front-right sensor is probably knocked out of alignment, or
    they are flithy with metal filings, or you've got one or two tires that
    aren't the same circumfrence, or low air pessure in a tire.

    Get it fixed because the light will come on steady, indicating that the
    ABS has shut itself OFF. Your resale value takes a dive if that happens.
