How do I get rid of the ABS light?

I have a 1998 s-10 blazer with a Dana 30 axle under the front. I took the ABS box out and run new lines from the brake master cylander to the brakes, but the ABS light still stays on. Is there a way to make this light turn off? I haven't unplugged any ABS fuses yet, Would that help? (is there any fuses other than the fuse box under the hood and on the side of the dash when you open the drivers door?) Or could i cut one of the plugs that go to the ABS box and wire them together?

take out your gauges and take it apart. the light is atached to the boad. brake it off. or have some burn it out of the computer.

it should turn off when you completely disconnect the ebcm. if not, try the fuses, it think that would be easier than messing with your gauges.

Well I pulled the fuse and nothing, so I took the dash apart and seperated the insrument cluster and pulled the light out. It solved the problem.

I think I lucked up and my ABS light began to "dim out" and now is almost completely out. I love it.

It is soldered in to the panel, I had to use pliers and break the light off the board.
