Question about Cars & Trucks
Probably that you battery isn't charging. The battery needs very clean connections that is why it is best to take it apart once or twice a year to do preventative maintenance. Clean or replace the battery clamps, use a battery post brush or reamer style battery cleaner. Get a di-electric paste to put between afterwards to stop future oxidation or contamination from sulfur etc. Make sure your alternator is working, it may need brushes replaced. Make sure the belt is tight enough to turn it at high speeds without having a slip speed. If you still have problems replace the battery and the voltage regulator. (always change both together as the voltage regulator may have caused the old battery to boil, overcharge or fail etc) The battery can be tested for a high internal resistance by testing it under load (they have machines to do that).

Here are the major components for the ABS system. The most common problem I see is the wheel bearing becoming loose. The wheel speed sensor is located in the wheel bearing.

if everything is working fine, check to see if the security light is on when you try to start it. if so, its your gas shut off feature. i don't know why it happens, as mine does this to me all the time for no reason. turn your key to ON, and leave it there for 10 minutes. when the security light goes off, turn the key to off, and then try and start your car, that should work. (however, it might need to be left at ACC instead of ON for those 10 mins, not positive... but im pretty sure it goes to ON) ....

the p0601 code means there is a fault in the power train control mudule (pcm) usually caused by a short in the system, or unpluging pcm wires with the battery connected, unfortunetally this isnt a cheap fix as the pcm will need to be replaced, if your lucky your local dealership may be able to re-flash the computer and save it, but thats rare. sorry didnt have better news for you.

my pontiac did the same thing and all i had to do was replace the 40amp fuse. you can have someone turning the key while you hit the starter from underneath, if it starts then you need a new starter, if it dont then no, its something else. mine did the exact same thing and it was the 40amp fuse under the hod.
