Pull the battery cable off one of the posts when the car is running. If it turns off, then that means your alternator is bad. If it keeps running without a batttery connection, then your alternator is fine and maybe something else is shorting out and drawing a lot of power. Sometimes speaker wires to an amplifier touch ground and just consume all your battery juice and then the alternator power too. So look fro a faulty ground if the alternator is working

Battery light and abs light is on and battery wont stay charged, new battery and altenator is good

This sounds like a bad alternator , maybe it charges at times and other times it does not, check connections to battery and at alternator, also make sure all fuse are good.

My abs light and my battery light is on. new battery ran down in less than an hour.

check for voltage from the alternator, charge the battery ,, with a multi meter set to DC volts ,, check voltage, you should have a reading just a little over 12v dc, then start the car,, check again, you should get a reading between 13.5 volts to 14.5 volts , if you have that your alt is good,, if not Its not charging the battery as your driving, having a low battery makes the computer go crazy and it looks for anything wrong,, Ive had dash lights for everything light up ,

Sounds like the alternator is not fully charging the battery -- could be faulty alternator (including faulty voltage regulator), or just bad connections between battery / alternator / ground.

More info, please let me know.

Electrical power system service required.....ABS warning light, generator warning light, brake stalled and wont't restart

usually caused by failed generator. Fix the generator and other lights will also extinguish. The car should jump start, but will not stay running without a charged battery. Recommend removing the generator and take to parts store for testing. Would you like instructions for removing generator?
