One way to avoid seeing the light is simply to pull out the bulb in the
dashboard. However, a non-working ABS system will cause the speedometer
to stop working and trigger other lights like the brake warning light
etc. The wiring are all integrated.
There are some who "trick" the system by adding wires to bypass the bulb
etc but I would not recommend messing with the original set up of your
car. Couple of reasons: (1) You're sacrificing the safety feature that's
built in for a valid reason and (2) By adding wires to bypass, the system
may become very difficult to restore later on, affecting the resale value
of the car. Potential buyers know there's an ABS system in the car. Smart
buyers will start to suspect something wrong the moment they dont see the
ABS light illuminate before start up.
I suggest you consider rectifying the ABS module - a small price that
puts it back to working condition for another 5 years or more.

If ABS and Break's lights turn on together, meaning some of the
IC/component is malfunction and need to be replaced. As I know, most of the
cases need to replace the micro chip in order to resolve the ABS issue.
From your repair experience/histories, may i know what is the common failure?

Yes, especially the 1.8 version. It's unfortunate that the so many owners
have chosen to drive around with a failed ABS system due to the high cost
of replacing with new part, which is in excess of RM3k. And not many know
of the real benefits of the ABS system, including mechanics. The country
is so used to conventional braking system that all new improvements are
considered "optional" and given less emphasis.
