The ABS light means one of the components or circuits has failed, normally it defaults back to regular (not ABS) braking, minor safety issue at worst but do get it checked out as soon as you reasonable can, you have a fault in your airbag system, this is a significant safety issue, dont panic but have it checked asap. a blinking hold light means one sensor is telling another that something is wrong, usually not too serious as long as everything is working OK,

Why is the ABS light and ESC light on in my 2007 Kia Sportage

ABS light is on because one of your wheel sensors is going bad. It is usually tied into the hub and you bearing is going bad. Listen for a grinding sound and that would indicate a bad bearing.

How do you get airbag codes out of 01 kia sportage

You have to read them with a higher quality code reader. The same plug that you check "engine light" codes with will also do ABS, airbags, and many other systems. The basic engine code reader will not do the other systems - just the PCM codes (engine and trans). See if any of the auto part stores, service centers, etc in your area that read codes for free have a machine that will read airbags. But remember that a code must be there for light to be on. If you clear the code and issue is still there (usually bad clock spring in steering wheel) the light will just come back on.

Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.

The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

Had front brakes changed on my 2005 kia sportage now the ads brake ligh and the regular brake light won't go off

Depending on how much brake work was done, either the wheel sensors have been damaged or were not properly reconnected. The regular brake warning light may be on because the ABS is disabled at the moment. Fixing the ABS problem may extinguish the standard warning light too. I suspect the brakes are working but not as an ABS-equipped system.
If you have one of the auto parts chain stores near you, take it to them for a free scan of yoru computer; the error code it finds may be more specific that the ABS warning light.
