Spring Install

So, I can't ever find anything with the search function. Sorry if this has already been covered.

I put new springs on my Fit and now the ABS light is on. The manual says it means the ABS isn't working and to take it to the dealer. For obvious reasons, I don't want to bring it to the dealer, is there anything I can do to fix it? Or should I just bring it to my mechanic.

Thanks for the help.

to install the springs there are those little elecrtonic clips you have to unplug on the strut. unplug them again and blow them out and make sure they are plugged in good again. then unplug the battery for 5 minutes. replug the battery and turn the car on. this should hopefully solve your problem. +rep for questions
