SOURCE: my ABS light is staying on - 1995 Geo Prism

Your abs light is permanent. Most people don't bother to fix this, it is expensive, and your car is getting old. It means that the anti lock brake system has failed and needs repair. But your brakes still work fine, just don't have anti lock. So I'm not saying tape over the light on the dash, but.

Ignition lock cylinder removal column

first defeat the air bag system. as that can be very dangerous to any mech. working so close to the driver air bag !!!
some time the (toyota/gm) car was renamed to 1998 Chev, Prism.
this happened in 1997 at the NUMMI factory in calif. why do i mention this , that is because they made may changes , at a spec.
chassis vin number in 1997. some have Toy 4A engine others 7a.
vast changes, and most online FSM books are vague to the extreme here.
but the basic procedure,
1: better minus pull.
2: air bag defeat. the above battery disconnect does not kill air bags
for some time.. (long)
3: steering base plastics, remove.
4: remove anti-theft temper screws (takes some skill )
5: remove key switch connector. (at end of switch pig tail)
6: key switch is not free to spin,
7: some require the steering wheel to be pulled.
if 7 is true, learn first hot to not loose the Air bag coil spring timing.
I highly recommend getting a real shop manual for this car.
working blind can be dangerous to you and others.
the books are not rare, i say get one.

1991 geo prism brake and battery came on while driving for few minutes then went off what's it trying to tell me?

the battery is really charge failure.
but happens normally under 2 ways.
1: motor stalls, (car have M/T or A/T)
2: motor RPM drops real low, to like 500rpm or less. near stall.
and generator (alt) drops off line.
all normal, next time , look at RPM of engine when the lamps come on and that tells you what is happening.
buy a tachmeter, if no dash tach opted.
or use a mech. tach and use it while driving.

1997 GEO Prism engine light is on. Auto Zone says something is going on with my coolant system. Car has been sitting up for a year. Coolant was low so I added some. What would you suggest?

I had the same problem in my Subaru.It was low on coolant and ran just a little hot for a couple of minutes, and the "check engine" light came on.After adding coolant and resetting the light it never came back on.So, try resetting the light by unplugging the positive end from the battery for a few minutes, and then plug it back in.See if it will stay off, if not you may need to change the temperature sensor located near the thermostat on the top of the motor where the top radiator hose runs into the motor.
