1993 Honda Prelude Brakes

When I brake the Prelude, the brake peddle and steering wheel vibrate quite a bit for a few seconds and as the car slows down the vibration stops. Any idea what is wrong? Is the rotor out of round?

Possibly; there are other problems that will give you that sort of vibration, too. How long since the brakes were done last?

Not sure, I bought the car about a year ago. I had the back brakes completely redone about 8 months ago. At that time I was told the front were OK.

One other thing happened in the last month or so, the anti lock brake light is on.

Probably going to be a good idea to have the brakes professionally checked; the vibration could be related to the ABS which is going to generally move it out of DIY.

Your rotors are warped, which is caused by braking too hard or fast.
