No issues with that on mine, but I would work backwards.

1. Make sure there are no leaks at the calipers.

2. Carefully trace all brake lines from the calipers to the brake distribution block, making sure none of them are kinked or rusted through. (Our '02 Accord had one of its lines rust through, but it was very common on that generation of Accord.)

2A. Also check any lines from the distribution block, back to the master cylinder.

3. Are there any vacuum lines that run to the master cylinder? Those could cause improper operation.

4. If all that looks good, could it be a failing master cylinder? I would suspect it, but have never encountered it in any Honda I've owned. But, I would wait for someone here to answer back with a proper way to test it, before throwing money at a problem that might not be solved.

You need to go somewhere and apply your brakes so your ABS works - Do this a few times then bleed the brakes again - Worked for me.
