If the idle is low enough, the alternator may not be providing the required voltage for the SRS system. Have the throttle body cleaned and adjusted and see if that helps.

02 jeep grand cherokee no lights on for abs but abs not working

what indications have you got that makes you think the ABS is not operational?
under normal braking applications ( anything up to a panic stop) there is very little indication that the ABS is working as it only cuts in when a wheel stops revolving
at that point you will feel pulsations under your foot
run the fault codes and check for an ABS reported problem in case the light has blown out

My alternator warning light came on about a week ago. Before that the message "ABS and anti-skid due for service" appeared. I had ny breaks and wheels replaced about a week ago. The alternator light came...

The problem is the lights on the dash coming on! They are indicating a possible fault that needs looking at! The brake light will have been reset once the brakes were serviced so we can dismiss that! The alternator light indicates that the battery is not being charged sufficiently! If the battery is not being charged then the vehicle will only run as long as the battery has charge in it.....since it is not charging properly the car will stall if the battery is not fully charged and will cut out completely when the battery is discharged! Get the alternator checked/replaced straight away!

Abs light appeared on dashboard display for the first time tonight.Not sure what to do and is it likely to cost alot of money

the ABS light of course is warning u that the ABS has developed a fault and has been disabled by the ABS control module, the only way to find out what is wrong and how much it is going to cost to repair is having the dealer test the system for the trouble code that is set in the control modules memory whenever this light is turned on. Right now u have just regualr brakes, no ABS function.

Have you checked the drain hole in the bottom of the plenum chamber? It can block and the plenum floods, partially submerging the ABS control unit.

My 1999 Pontiac Grand Am is producing a smell from the engine that is coming in through the vents and I've noticed this off and on for a couple days. The Break and ABS lights came on today, though i had my...

Very probably a leaking exhaust. Its probably the joint between the manifold and the exhaust system. The ABS issue is probably a red herring.

Note. Get it checked out as that smell contains a lot of Carbon Monoxide and could cause you to pass out and die. Serious stuff!

DSC and ABS Not avail lights come on after driving.

There is a switch underneath that goes out due to the debris underneath. Either take it to the shop or deal with the lights comming on.

Abs and brake lights comes on

What you will need to do is have the system scanned for codes. Your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto will scan the vehicle at no cost for you. Write the code numbers down and reply back.
When both lights come on, it is indicating one of the ABS sensing components is not operating properly. Your base brakes will be fine, however the ABS function will not work properly. No danger of base brakes not stopping the vehicle.
My guess at this point would be a wheel speed sensor faulty, but again, only a guess until you get the codes scanned.
Get the codes and let me know.

My 1999 pontiac grand am will idle low, but does not cut off.

Sounds like your oil pressure sensor may be faulty. Or your oil level is very low. Your engine should idle as low as 650 rpm without your light coming on.
