Question about 2001 Buick Regal
The Anti-Lock light keeps turning on and off. I had new tires put on and that's when the light came on, tried resetting it the light would turn off but then if I start it again and drive it the light would come back on while driving.
They probably pulled apart or damaged one of the ABS wires/connectors from the body to the hub assembly.
I'd check all the wires and if they are good, make sure they put the same sized tires on and that they are inflated the same.
Different size tires or gross differences in inflation will cause the wheel speed sensors to think there is a problem because one s turning at a different rate.

Check sensor wiring at wheels. One may have been loosened or disconnected.

You have a serious brake problem, most likely the front brakes are metal to metal, have it inspected ASAP, many brake shops and tire stores do this for free.

Testimonial: "thank you!"
i recently had this problem too, except i had all the lights on (ABS, service vehicle, trac-off, AND service engine) they are all easy to fix without spending more than 20-30$ for labour (depending how much your mechanic charges you) mine did it for free and he found out why the engine light is on afterwards too. so to fix all these lights (abs, trac-off, and service vehicle you MUST get another ABS cable (i went to a garage, they were towing a GM vehicle to the junk yard so i grabbed some scissors and cut BOTH abs cables on each side (good thing i did because one was bad) and braught them to my mechanic. the reason the lights come on is probably a defect or in my case my mechanic said it was salt buildup in the wires (on the drivers side) so he cut the wire off and rewired the new one and BOOM all the lights came off (service vehicle, abs, and trac-off) now for my service engine it says catalytic converter but im trying to put some fuel system cleaner to help it out i read somewhere that this is a defect of the car, so if you dont have that light yet, SELL your car ASAP for as much as you can get for it (after fixing the lights of course) and always google (car name+recalls) in the search bar to see what youre getting into, take care
