SOURCE: '96 Toyota 4-Runner makes a loud squealing noise and brake light

Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

This could be a problem with your plugs or plug wires, throttle position sensor. Did you just put some new tires on? When you put tires/wheels on that are bigger than was originally on there then it can rob power from the engine. Another thing that I would check would be for vacuum leaks. Hook a vacuum gauge up to a vacuum port on the engine and read the gauge. That will give you a better idea about what is really going on vacuumwise. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ABS light and brake light on

there are 2 options, ABS module is most likely, I just had my ABS module remanufactured and it worked greate when i re-installed.

the second option is the wheel sensor could have a bad connection(may have been bumped when your bearing got looked at.

there are a few companies that repair ABS modules, i used modulemasters, they did a good job, i can not vouch for any of the other companies.

Your vehicle should be covered if you purchased extended warranty when you bought the vehicle, if you have Consumer affair in the country that you live in then check with them as a lot of these Insurance Companies will tell you that it is not covered by them so they don't have to pay the money out if they think you will just go away and not hassle them. Consumer affairs will tell you whether your Insurance Company has to pay for the damage or not and will also contact the Insurance company and make them pay the money out to have your car repaired,

Get underneath and check the linkage bar that goes from the shifter inside the cabin to the tranny underneath. Sometimes these bars, especially on GMC vehicles can come off or become stuck, if it does become stuck then you have to take it to a dealer because local mechanics unless they've dealt with it will only make the situation worse. i used to tow cars and trucks and this is a common issue with GMC from the 90s til mid-to late 2000s

My 2004 toyota 4-runner rear window heater and wipers stopped working

If they stopped at the same time,...Probably a bad fuse. If not, follow wires. Wire harness may have come unattached.
If at different times, Your warrentee probably just ended.

Bad vibration and car won't function

being 98 and having 100k on the vehicle can be numerous thing can be wrong and need replacing. first thing being 98 and 100k miles, the way you describe it, the car may have jump time and timing belt may need replacing, second can be weak/faulty fuel pump, injectors, cam and crank sensors may also be going bad. have you check the basic from spark plugs, coil, wires and distributor and rotor. air-mass flow sensor may also going bad and not working properly. on top of it all, transmission should be flush at 100k, it also sound like it may need new transmission. bad vibration is a sign the engine is not running correctly form being off timing. I would start looking in at the timing belt and see if the belt worn and still in correct timing. I would go ahead and have it replace if you planed to keep the car. being 98' used running motors are cheaper than doing a complete engine rebuild from a junk yard or ebay and same way with transmission. hope that help some..
