I maybe wrong on this, but I believe ABS cars do not have rotors.

How do i tell if i have abs? Can i look at the driveshaft and tell? Maybe the break rotor/calibers?
Don't quote me on this, but I've read that you can check your fusebox. There should be a spot that's labeled "ABS". If you have a fuse in there, you have ABS. If you don't have a fuse, then you don't have it.

I think this is the "dummies way to check" but like I said, I read this and can't say it's 100% true.

Yep that is a way to check, as I was unsure as well when I bought my car, just check the fuse box, or you could take it on a snowy road, and slam the brakes, if the pedal does not kick back, and you lock up, hehe well then ya know :).

thanx, but erlyer i crawed under my car looking for the abs computer (hanynes repair manual sead it would be under the right "kick panel") and could not find it.
That proved that it dos not have abs (but it dose have abs fuse box with fuses in it)

So what's the fuse doing in there then?? Who put it there?? Just curious, seems a little odd that there would be a fuse in there for something that doesn't exist, kinda pointless.

maybe also they all used universal fuse boxes on these, and including the ones with abs for an option.
Ya, I can understand there being a slot for the ABS even if you don't have it, but why is there a fuse in it?? I'm no expert by any means, just seems like there is no point in a fuse if you don't have ABS.

With the fuse in try to lock the brakes up and see how they act. Then with the fuse out try the same thing. If the car acts exactly the same, I'm going to say the fuse is just there as a dummy. If I can remember at lunch I will look and see if my 98 SE has the mystery fuse or not. Are you guys talking about in the fuse panel or the relay box under the hood?
