I'm not so sure. I believe that the ABS does a self-test the first time
your speed exceeds ~5 MPH after a power cycle.

I've also seen the occasional "reset" occur once I move off following
a hard stop (though not hard enough to engage ABS). Dunno why it does
this though.

All of this on a '93 90... FWIW
