Question about Cars & Trucks
Car turned off going down highway, battery light was only one on after it happened but now ABS light is too.
You could have an error code that caused the engine to shut off but that is really rare. There are a lot of things that cause the abs light to come on. Brake wear, faulty brake components, and/or sensors, reservoir levels.
Has it ever happened before? Has it happened again since the first time?

Testimonial: "Never happened until yesterday. I saw the EPC, ABS, battery, and brake indicators go on when it happened. Got it back home and checked everything like sunroof/ windows, alarm, interior/ exterior lights, wipers, horn, radio, AC, all switches, and fuses and all check out fine except the dash lights. When the dash lights were on and I gave it gas at ~1500 rpm the dash lights would turn off then slowly come back on. Battery was at 12.76V and alternator was at 13.56V, a little low but still charging the battery. Only the battery indicator was on yesterday and today the battery and ABS are on. Just recently I went and unclipped the Mass airflow sensor and made sure there was nothing in the terminals and reattached it. When I started it up the battery light was delayed but came on then slowly faded away a few seconds later. Took it for a test drive and everything seems to be working like it should. Still not sure if I should take it to AZ to see what the codes are/were."

Believe it or not, this could be a mass airflow issue. The mass airflow can trigger the lights the ASR and the EPC lights. When i gets really cold, the airflow sensor sends signals to the CPU to readjust the air/fuel mixture.
