Check 3 things;

  1. The Switch on the Dome Light itself
  2. The Light Dimmer Switch on the Dash
  3. The Door plunger switches
Any of these can make the light stay on.

How to turn off abs light on 1997 buick skylark

Well the ABS light(Anti-lock Brake System) light when lit means the computer has stored a trouble code. Also, this means the ABS system is off-line. The brakes function as usual but have the possibility of locking up in a panic stop situation. So to turn off the light you should take it to a qualified shop that can diagnose the trouble code with a scan tool (most likely a wheel sensor) and give you an estimate for the repair. Get your ABS system working again!
I hope this helps you

1997 buick skylark When I turn the key on; the usual dash lights do not come on. When this happens the engine will turn over but immediately dies. When the lights finally come on (took 45 minutes before...

Perhaps the computer is going bad, or the connections to it are bad.

Many lights on the dash are controlled by the computer, including the Service Engine Soon light which should go on when the ignition is turned on as a bulb check feature.

When the car starts and runs under its own power this light should go off and stay off if the emission control systems are in working order.
