Sounds like bad alternator??? Low battery voltage may have caused a bogus ABS code, please explain in further detail the extent of the car not starting. Is the battery fully charged etc..???? Does the car "click" instead of turning over, does the car try to turn over, but not start, or does nothing happen when you turn the key?

Your battery charging system is defective, the battery is going dead and that is the cause of the other issue like the ABS light. Get the charging system diagnosed.

SE. Why won't it turn over?

if the battery light came on than there is a good chance the alternator has stopped working. If you can get it started again with either a jump start, charging the battery, or replacing the battery, check the voltage at the battery. You should see more than 14 volts. if there is less than 12 volts a new alternator should resolve the issue.

While driving on the highway, my abs would engage and cause a 'slipping' feeling. At first there was no light on the dashboard but after a couple of hours, it did come on. I pulled over and...

Brakes are important, if you have no mechanical ability seek professional help to resolve this issue. Likely you have defective sensor somewhere in the system.

Alternator bad know

Take the car to a local Autozone and have the Alternator tested, it is free. Also when the "Battery" light comes on it doesn't mean there is a problem with the battery persay it means the battery is not getting charged up while you drive.

When I turn the key on my car the radio and inside lights come on

I had the same problem for about five months, sometimes the car started for two months than all of a sudden it make take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to get it to turn over. Final analysis (when it finally would not start for two days) a new starter was needed. (2001 Cadillac STS)

2006 Sonata ESC Off Light

I had the same problem at 35,000 miles. I would be driving and suddenly the ESC Off Light would illuminate. It would disappear if the car was turned off, only to reappear after a few miles of driving. It turned out to be a faulty "brake light switch."

ABS Pump problems

the problem you describe is that the wiring near the hand brake is acting as a ground wire for the starter system and is carrying excessive current

the ABS pump is the same as in a mazda of the same year but ford would not tell you that
take it to an auto electrician for a proper diagnosis
There are plenty of serviceable ABS unts at the wreckers /junk yard and if checked out by an accredited brake specialist shop will do the job
