Vacuum leak causes high rpm and hard brake pedal; it can also cause rough idle or you need a tune-up.

Does it have the 2.3l Quad 4 engine? If so replace the plastic piece that the coils go into, they go bad and leak spark to the cam towers and then you get a nice one or multiple cylinder misfire.

"...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...

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

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.

The service light means something is wrong with the car and it needs attention now. Get the codes checked and that will tell you what is wrong with it.
