Have you had previous trouble with the ABS warning light?

As far as I'm concerned if the ABS warning light is staying on the ABS system isn't working can you say for sure that the car doesn't skid and that the ABS system is working?

I found the best way to test the ABS was to find either a gravel surface or a loose surface like waste ground, you need to get up to about 30 mph then if you brake hard you will feel the brake pedal pulse as the ABS works, different cars give different feelings through the peddle.

Did the warning light come on as soon as the new discs were fitted or a day or so after?
