Better check alternator before it cooks battery, or worse cooks wiring.

On my 1995 buick lesabra my voltage light and my bettary light stays on together

sounds like the alternator has failed. If you charge up the battery and get it running long enough you should be able to check power at the battery. you should see more than 14 volts with the engine running. also check to make sure there is battery voltage at the large wire on the back of the alternator. If both of these check out than a new alternator shoould solve your prioblem.

Location of crank sensor on 1997 lesabre

The crank sensor should be on the passenger side of the engine. It probably won't be visible without first removing the power steering reservoir, and possibly other items on that side of the engine. It is located down below near the waterpump pulley.

ABS & Brake indicator lights came on stayed on while I was driving. Brakes are working but the indicators are still on.

An ABS code scanner needs to be hooked up to it to find out what the cause is, ten to one, it might be one of the wheel speed sensors.
When road dirt and grime build up on the end of those sensors, it's not getting a true reading of the speed of the wheel and therefore sends a false signal to the computor and turns on the light.
If there is an autozone near you, call them and ask them if they check codes for abs lights, I know they do for check engine lights.
Hope this helped.

I parked my 97 morning it would not turn over.Tried to jum start.interior light was bright untill I tried to start the engine,then the lights went out like the battery was dead.

How old is the battery? Check battery connections for corrosion (clean if in doubt, or corrosion evident), make sure connections are tight. Next, pull battery, bring to a parts store, they will check it for FREE, and let you know if it is just low charge (due to dirty, or loose cables, or a charging problem-alternator), or if the battery is shot, and time to replace it has arrived. Good luck, sounds like battery is bad, but check those connections 1st.
