ABS Fault

In the Teg the other day, the ABS light came on after EOC. I performed a coast-restart and the initial self-check was OK, and the light turned off.

This happened about 10 more times over the last 3 days.

Now, the continuous self-test identified a fault, and it's on continuously.

I consulted the shop manual. Ugh. There's a separate ECU and fault-code system. Then I went cross-eyed and decided to post...

Any ideas on what typically goes first (or an easy way to test this without the Honda PGM tool)? I'm guessing that it's not a fuse, due to the intermittent nature of the failure.

Secondly, should I worry about it? It goes into fail-safe mode and isolates the ABS system from regular braking. It would be nice to have, but it's not essential.

Aside from that, there's that annoying neon orange ABS glaring at me.
