Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1999 Jeep Cherokee

My ABS light stays on and I hear a 'ding' while I'm driving. The light is always on. The dinging is sporadically. I hit a car about a year ago. Noting was damaged... It was more like a tap. The dash was fine after the accident- it started months afterwards so it may not be connected.
Also, my right blinker blinks twice as fast as it should.

    I get the ding when the ABS light comes on and then it stays on. I think it only turns off when I have the battery disconnected. I don't know if the problem is related but I had a dead battery the other day with everything looking like it was shut off - jump started it, drove to work, when I went to shut it off there was a noise like an actuator trying to actuate behind the driver side of the dash. I didn't think anything of it until I went to start it and the battery was dead, and I noticed that the positive battery terminal was very warm. Jump-started again and after some driving the problem has disappeared.

I've had the ABS problem several times, and each time it was a failing wheel speed sensor.

The easy part first...the blinker flashing fast means one of the bulbs is burned out and needs replaced.
the abs light being on is the more difficult to resolve. it is telling you that something is wrong in the abs system. you need to find a dealer or reputable garage to pull the codes to give you a direction to go as how to repair.

Lift gate open warning light sounds when temp is below 60

sounds like the cold temps cause the metal door to warp which causes an increased distance to the sensor that tells the computer the lift gate is open. The lift gate sensors should be adjusted to be closer together.

The air bag light and dinger keeps coming on and dinging while driving.

Most likely the air bag sensor. Not too hard to change, just make sure you disconnect the battery before changing it!

Which light is on ? The ABS light or regular Brake light?
If ABS light is on, your ABS is currently not working and it might be an electrical problem.
If the regular brake light is on something is wrong with the hydralics in the brake system. Either way bring it in ASAP. Good luck

The clockspring behind the steering wheel is possibly defective or unplugged. It is the one and only component that all of your symptoms have in common.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4.7 speedometer flips around when headlights are on bad, and rarely when they are not on.

Sounds like a "bad" earth on the dash head unit. Also check enging to chassis earths, gearbox to chassis, battery to chassis etc.
