Default ABS noises


I have a 92 SL1 with ABS option. It is a five speed and the brakes are good and I had them serviced recently, but when I brake hard I hear like this clicking computer noise from my engine. Is that just what the ABS on the older ones sounds? I mean the brakes work good I can feel the tires do their slide and roll method of ABS but I hear that noise sometimes and it kinda gets me worried. But my ABS light has never gone on so I dunno, help???

The sound you hear is the ABS system working, as long as it coincides with your feeling the ABS working at the wheels. It should sound like the sound you hear when you first start driving, when the ABS self-checks itself.

The ABS warning light should light up when you first turn the ignition on, with the other dummy lights. If any of them are out, the bulbs need to be replaced. Otherwise, the ABS light only comes on when the system is not working properly, not when it's engaged. (at least that's what my owners manual says).
