Wait a minute. Rereading this as quoted by George has me a bit puzzled.


When you turned off the ABS with the switch (wish they would have  
kept this on the '92 -94 cars), did the orange ABS light come on or  
not?  Or are you saying it only came on when you pulled the ABS  
relay?  Usually, if you have an ABS problem the orange light comes on  
and stays on.  Hmmm.
