"...should not have to have to deal with these issues"
Agreed! But, there seems to be a glitch involving the ABS and TRAC system. On my 99 GAGT, when the eng and tranny are cold, I tend to get an ABS fail during turn/brake instances. If I restart the engine, it generally goes away. I've done a bit of research and have found nothing that fives a definitive answer to this. If you take it to the dealer, it will cost an arm and a leg for the troubleshooting alone. I'd recommend driving it as is provided you can get the ABS to reset by restarting the engine.
Sorry I can't provide any better solution...

It is one of your wheel bearings. The problem is easily solved by taking the car to a dealer, or having a code reader, and determining which wheel bearing is bad. The wheel bearing is under $150 and should be installed by someone with some muscle, as the bolts are torqued from the factory extremely tight in a tight location. The wheel bearing have all of your sensors for abs built into them and if that sensor goes out your computer tells the abs and traction control to shut down, hence you get the lights on on the dash.

the most common thing that causes this problem, other than spinning in mud, is a wheel speed sensor. the best thing for you to do is get your car scanned. autozone offers free scanning. i have seen many hub bearings go bad, come loose and cause this. if the problem comes and goes the hub is likely the culprit. i have also seen cracked abs rings cause this at higher speeds, i have also seen the harness running to the rear wheels torn out from running over tree limbs. i would definitely start with a scan to narrow down possibilities and save you money done by guess work. you can try jacking up each wheel and shaking to ensure that all bearings are tight. if you have access to a oscilloscope you can backprobe each sensor while spinning the wheel and find which one is breaking down.. hope this was helpful... dustang

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

These lights have nothing to with the engine work, unless they disconnected or damaged your abs sensors. it sounds like they need replaced, problem is they are integrated into the hub/bearing assembly. when you replace the hub(s) be certain not to over-torque the axle nut, as this would simply redamage the hub
