Independent shop replaced 96 TL master cylinder a few weeks ago but
brakes seemed to be less "firm" than before the problem arose (pedal to
the floor). Now the ABS light comes on and the mechanic says that the
codes say the accumulator is at fault. Acura dealer says he has never
sold an accumulator ($1200).
Has anyone had to replace an accumulator on an Acura product?

They routinely failed in the Hondas of that vintage. I've never met anyone
who bought one though. The $1200 price tag serves to remind one that ABS

replacing the master cylinder and the pedal is not firm after the job, I
think there is a good chance that the problem is air in the lines or the
master cylinder was not properly installed.
